The 1point network provides on average over 350 counselling and psychotherapy sessions a week and has contact with more than 5,000 people a year who are looking for ways to improve their own wellbeing or help support their families, friends, colleagues, employees and communities.  We receive funding from the NHS to deliver IAPT counselling appointments, but to meet the increased demand for choice and availability of psychological therapies throughout our communities we are reliant on additional sources of income.

Can you help us offer more one-to-one and relationship therapies, supportive groups, information, advice and guidance to help us help our clients become happier, healthier and valued members of our communities?

Please support us if any of the following statements apply to you:

  • You or someone you know has benefited from counselling or a support service within the 1point network.
  • You have participated in a 1point training or therapy group, or would like the opportunity to do so in the future.
  • You believe that there should be easier access to a wider choice of therapies in non-stigmatising settings to suit their individual needs and circumstances.
  • You support initiatives to increase volunteering and paid employment opportunities for local people looking to provide emotional and psychological support services to others. 

Your donations help us to:

  • Cover the costs of accommodation and administration.
  • Supplement volunteer expenses, including the cost of essential supervision and training, to ensure they meet national professional standards of practice.
  • Maintain publicity and engagement activities to help promote all our services to a wider audience as possible.
  • Collectively co-design new services and projects, quickly and flexibly, to meet identified local demand. 

Donations are disseminated across our membership. Amounts will be calculated on the number of talking therapy hours they have provided for 1point annually.

If you would like to make a direct donation to an individual 1point member, go to our team page for further details.

Help us to boldly go further!
