Counselling and support for
children and young people
Call TeenTalk on
01225 667328


As a charity we rely on generous donations to continue the fantastic work we do. It is the generosity of individuals, trusts, local authorities and other organisations that allow us to support children and young people each year. We receive no government funding.

We know we need to be doing more and we have ambitious plans to help even more of those in need of our support. To provide that support we need your support.


  • £10 will pay the running costs of our telephone support line for a week
  • £25 will pay the cost of a counsellor for one hour
  • £50 will help pay for the essential back office support that is needed to support the delivery of our counselling sessions
  • £100 will cover the costs of maintaining the therapy room and offices at The Canberra Centre for a month so that we can deliver our counselling service
  • £200 will provide a "standard" course of therapy sessions enabling a young person to understand with, and more effectively deal with, overwhelming emotions

Around 50% of mental health issues in adults started before they were aged 15. Helping children and young people develop emotional resilience is essential for laying the foundation of good mental health in later life. So any contribution you can make is very gratefully received and incredibly well used.

Or you can simply send us a cheque, made payable to ‘Young Melksham’, to:

Young Melksham
The Canberra Centre
56b Spa Road
SN12 7NY

If you are sending a cheque donation please stipulate in any accompanying letter or write on the back of the cheque that the payment is for our TeenTalk service so that we can allocate your kind donation correctly.
