We need your help.

Touchstones is a highly effective organisation with a growing referral rate – driven by an increasing number of children and their families needing access to our proven and valued service. We rely on your help to raise all the funds that are required to ensure we can continue to respond to the needs of each hurting child.

Without your donations and support  – the work will stop.

Please help us to be there for the children and young people in our communities who are ( and will be) in real need of our help.

We operate within a very frugal cost structure, with our funding primarily coming through the support of families and individuals, local schools, and local community organisations together with some generous and highly significant support from a small number of grant providing trusts.

We cannot continue to support our local children and young people without you supporting us.

We are determined to be here for all of our children and young people, and to here for those, whose lives today seems normal, but for whom tomorrow – it could change forever. We can’t do this without you and your fundraising help – below are some ways in which you can work with us to help us in this great and important support;

  • £5 could pay for a memory box for each young person
  • £15 could pay for craft materials used in the 1-1 sessions
  • £30 could buy all the candles for the candle-time memory ceremony at the Touchstones Day
  • £50 would buy for two 1-1 sessions for a child or young person with a counsellor
  • £250 pays for a child and young person through all their 1-1 support sessions
  • £500 pays for hiring the facilities, Outdoor Staff and Outdoor activities at one of the special Touchstones Memory Days

Our supporters have been inspired to raise money for Touchstones in many different ways, from running, zipwiring, cake baking, coffee mornings, quiz nights, going without, craft fairs, quilt making, …..
