How will we spend your money?
Your generous donations will be directly used in the practical running our counselling service. We provide either free or Low Cost counselling to individuals across London and as such we are almost totally dependent on donations from organisations and individuals. This means that your money quite literally goes towards helping vulnerable and at risk individuals across London access essential mental health support.
Your money might be spent hiring an interpreter to help a client be seen in a language the we cannot otherwise provide, alternatively your money might mean that we can now even hire a counsellor who speaks a specific, much requested language. This means that we can now start to support a whole new group of people who previously we might not have been able to support.
Whilst we are so lucky to have a hugely diverse teams of volunteer counsellors who speak a variety of languages and form the backbone of our service, we are also grateful to work with highly qualified, specialised counsellors and an amount of our funding goes towards giving these clinicians a fare wage to carry out their important work.
Your donation could also help pay the salaries of the small but dedicated team of administrators and office staff who work tirelessly to keep Waterloo Community Counselling operational during this economically-trying and socially challenging time.
Years of national austerity measures, cuts to welfare and social care has made it increasingly difficult for socially vulnerable and economically impoverished people to survive in this hostile society. Simultaneously, decades of war, conflict and unrest overseas has lead, worldwide, to millions of desperate and often highly-traumatised refugees, asylum-seekers and migrants. Some of them find themselves here in the UK, hoping for a better life but many quickly discover the cruel bureaucratic system of the Home Office and can become dependent on charities, services and food banks for vital support.
More people are in need of mental health support than ever before and we are pleased to be able to help them, but we need you as well – the more money we can raise the more people we can help.
We are incredibly grateful to these organisations for supporting the work we do. Thank you.
