Eleven year old Ben Winter is raising funds for Confide!

Eleven year old Ben Winter  has been busy for months chopping and packing kindling ready for those cold winter days. The kindling is just £5.00 per bag and every penny will go towards providing quality counselling for people experiencing mental distress and disadavantage through low income.

Ben is no stranger to charity work, every year he goes off on an expedition and gets sponsored to complete the journey. He manages to complete challenges that most adults would find daunting and raises hundreds of pounds each year for local good causes. The Trustees, volunteers and staff at Confide are very grateful to Ben for choosing our charity as the beneficiary for his latest initiative.

Ben's fundraising will make it possible for people to get support they otherwise could not afford.

If you would like to support the fundraiser we can arrange for kindling to be collected from our Shrewsbury Office. Please telephone the office or use our web enquiry form to place your order.


Confide Lottery Funded Telephone Project a Success!

Our new telephone service has helped us to reach many more peopple accross the counties of Shropshire and Telford. Clients who cannot get into the Roy Fletcher Centre for reasons such as having no transport, being a parent of young children, having a social phobia or a long term health condition, have been able to have up to 8 sessions free of charge from the comfort, privacy and convenience of thier own home. Clients are reporting significant improvements as a result of thier therapy. One client who opted for the telephone service due to social phobia has since gained confidence to come into the Centre for thier final session representing a vast improvement in confidence.



Book Fair Success!

Confide Counselling Service held a Book Fair in the market Square Shrewsbury on Friday 14th July. Trustees, staff and volunteers sold lots of books, plants and bric a brac. The event was well-attended and raised over £250.00 for Confide Funds.  Some of our donated ornaments were purchased by the RSPB to use on thier stall - we are pleased that those dontations have supported both charities!

We are really happy to be associated with our local Co-op. Not only has the Radbrook Store supported us by allowing us to have a collection in thier foyer, but the Mid-Counties Co-op has also given us a grant of £250.00. We will be using the money to subsidise our low fee clients. Making counselling affordable for the people who need our services.
