Get Connected launches free telephone counselling service for under 25s

Get Connected has been awarded funding from the Department for Education’s Voluntary and Community Sector (VCS) grants scheme to create an in-house telephone counselling service for under 25s. We are one of 94 projects nationwide chosen to receive a portion of this funding.

Jessica Taplin, CEO at Get Connected, says: “Many young people are struggling with the adolescent process and require affirmation and positive support that they can build on, positive strategies that encourage them to address their issues and get them back on track before things become critical. Get Connected are delighted with the opportunity that this grant provides to help thousands more children access the mental health support they need, when they need it.”

Our service is free and offers up to seven sessions to help young people develop positive strategies to improve their mental health and wellbeing.

The service is accessible via our free helpline on 0808 808 4994 or through our online referral form.

We’re also looking for volunteer counsellors to support the service – more information is available on our volunteering pages.
