Support YES without spending a penny

YES has been put forward in the Aviva Community Fund to raise money to extend our opening hours.  

We are completely dependant on the generous donations from the public and initiatives such as this. 

If successful the Aviva funding would allow us to extend drop in and scheduled counselling services to provide a much fuller and needed after school and weekend service by:

  • integrating paid counsellors with our volunteers
  • admin support to operate a "front desk" and allow the opening of the centre for longer whilst protecting the safety of users and volunteers
  • up-skilling our volunteers with additional courses, qualifications and support

You can support by visiting our site here

Voting is really easy and takes 2 minutes, all you need is an email address.

 

Green token scheme

John Lewis has put YES apart of their community matters programme. Now to April we are one of three local charities that will benefit from their green token scheme. So every transaction you make in John Lewis at High Wycombe, you can claim a green token and then put it in our box. (The box is to be found just outside the cafe on the top floor) Please support us, thank you all and a big thank you to #johnlewis! #fingerscrossed #greentokenscheme

Mental health help

On the BBC news today it has been reported schools are struggling to get mental health help. A survey has been carried out to mark the Children's Mental Health Week- found 44% of head teachers said knowing what type of support was needed was a barrier to them providing mental health support for pupils. 

Here at Y.E.S we provide local schools with a counselor, we acknowledge we need more counselors at more schools, however at the agency we offer counselling to 13-25 year olds. If you have a son, daughter or yourself feel you need to speak to someone please get in touch.
