Making a donation

To make a donation just use the PayPal donate button below, you don't have to have an account and it's secure and simple.

We have received past funding from the Big Lottery fund and £1,300 last year from Tesco's "Bag's of Help" scheme



Alternatively cheques can be sent to the Administrator at the address on our contact us page. Please make out your cheque to 'Hitchin Counselling Service'.


We have no paid staff. All our counsellors, our supervisors, the administrator and treasurer and the trustees provide their services free of charge. Our counselling rooms at the Bedford Road Health Centre are provided free of charge through the East & North Herts Primary Care Trust, for which we are very grateful. Nevertheless we do have costs, including telephone, indemnity insurance, professional affiliation fees and day to day office expenses.


We also ensure that the quality of counselling provided by our team is maintained and enhanced by providing Masterclass workshops each year. These are led by experts in their field, and we have to pay their fees and the costs incidental to these events.


We are strongly committed to offering a service free at the point of delivery for all who can benefit from counselling. We do accept donations, and many grateful clients have given to Hitchin Counselling Service.


But we would not be able to provide our service without the generous support of grant aid, and over recent years we have received financial support from the North Herts District Council and the Hertfordshire Community Foundation.


Legacy Giving

You can include Hitchin Counselling Service in your will.


Organise a fundraising event

This could easily be something that would be a fun social event such as an organised lunch, coffee morning, sponsored event or concert.


Any size of donation is greatly valued and appreciated by the staff and clients of the service. All donors will receive a formal receipt and a letter of thanks. All donations go directly to supporting our service for the residents of Hitchin and the surrounding villages.

Thank you
