Help us replace the contents of our van

Last week our mobile unit was stolen (July 2015). We use the van is used to get out and about and meet young people who might otherwise not receive the advice and support they need.

While the van itself is insured it could be some time before we’re able to buy a replacement. We urgently need to replace the contents, which included educational drugs boxes, a gazebo, tables, chairs, a TV and sporting equipment. We need this to allow us to go out and do what we do best - supporting young people.

If you can help us raise the money please visit Crowdfunder and make a pledge.
