Youth talk is our chosen charity

The charity chosen for the Abbey Service in the next academic year is Youth Talk. They are a charity who support the local community by offering an open door policy and working on a self referral basis encouraging young people to seek help early regarding mental health issues. At Youth Talk they take pride in providing a one to one professional, experienced and safe counselling service of the highest quality for a range of issues.

A group of senior prefects from the lower sixth went to visit the charity on Wednesday 10th of May. They went to establish a connection with the charity and met the CEO Trevor Formant. The group of students have begun to put plans in place that will be implemented over the coming weeks such as include raising the awareness of Youth Talk and the issue of mental health. This will be done over the next few months through fundraising and assemblies. It would be greatly appreciated if more students could get involved.
