Help us raise vital funds!

Every year the demand for our counselling services increases and every penny we get fundraising helps us ensure we can help everyone who asks. There are lots of easy ways you can help us this Christmas, voting for us, shopping at all the stores who donate to us every time you shop with them, even that last minute on-line shopping can help us. Take a moment to look at what we are doing and if you can help us please do!

We need lot’s more votes!

The Aviva Community Fund offers us the chance to get funding for causes important to the community.

It’s open to everyone, whether you have a connection with Aviva or not. If we get enough votes from friends, family and supporters in the community our project could make it to the finals, where a judging panel will award the funds.
Voting ends on 20th November - vote now!
