Founded in 2002 by a group of Christians who saw the need for counselling in the community, New Dawn's vision is to make counselling accessible, to provide affordable counselling service to those in need. Operating as a Community Interest Company, New Dawn is not-for-profit. Any profit the centre makes goes into the bursary fund. Together with the donations we receive, the bursary enables people who are not as financially able, to receive counselling service they need.
The maximum amount for a client is £15 contribution towards their session cost for 12 sessions, or £180 per person which can be used on more or less sessions. The Bursary is limited to one application per client and is sourced from specific donations, this often means availability is limited. Applications for bursary funding are made through your New Dawn counsellor.
This system empowers our clients to pay what they can towards their therapy, whilst providing additional financial support to make the process more affordable. Enabling clients to value themselves and demonstrating that they are valued by others as well.

The bursary fund relies heavily on the donations we receive. The more donations we receive, the more people we are able to help! You can also donate to the general running of the centre.
