A Harrogate charity providing life-changing mental health support across our district, has been awarded a special £7,800 grant by BBC Children in Need.

Wellspring Therapy and Training in Starbeck will use the new funding to continue to deliver a programme of support and therapy for children and young people, aiming to boost their self-esteem and build positive relationships.

Emily Fullarton, Executive Director at Wellspring Therapy and Training, said: “We’re so pleased to have been awarded with this new funding from BBC Children in Need which will enable us to support some of the most vulnerable young people in our community.”

Isabel Farnell, BBC Children in Need Regional Head of the North, said: “At BBC Children in Need we fund projects that are making a tangible difference to young lives. We are delighted to be funding projects like Wellspring Therapy & Training, which is a great example of our Small Grants at work and is only possible thanks to our supporters.”

BBC Children in Need's Chief Executive, Simon Antrobus added: “With every grant awarded we are making a renewed commitment to transform young lives across the UK. Simply put, all of our grants – made possible by the generosity of the UK Public – ensure that projects working in the local community can respond to the needs of disadvantaged children and young people when they need it most.”
