This Christmas time we reflect on the challenges and opportunities of 2020. A year like no other.
With restrictions on our daily lives still in place, but the promise of at least some limited family time ahead, we’re all trying to balance the realities of life in a pandemic with our wish to make the most of this special time of year. A season that brings family, friends and our community together.
Here at Youth Talk, we’re looking back on our busiest ever year – and we’re so thankful that with your help, we’ve been here for so many young people who find themselves struggling with their mental health.
But we’re also looking forward – to growing our service further in the face of great demand, and to tackling our need for funding. We are determined to be there as our local young people face not just the many usual challenges of growing up, but the challenges brought by lockdowns, restrictions and uncertainty.
This Christmas we launched our first ever festive fundraiser. We are thankful to local community groups, St Albans council, Herts Ad, our Trustees, staff and of course supporters for helping us raise awareness of our Christmas Campaign and the vital work of our pioneering community charity.
If you would like to give an extra Christmas present by making a donation, please do so by visiting https://www.youthtalk.info/.
If you are unable to make a gift this Christmas, that’s ok, we know it has been a tough year.
Instead please help spread the word – tell your friends, family and people you know about our vital counselling service. The more young people who know that we are here, and that we are listening – the greater an impact we can have on our local community.
Please follow us on social media to keep up to date with our latest news.
