The Abingdon Bridge - Bridging the gap for vulnerable for young people.
What we do
We provide well trained and qualified staff who are able to support vulnerable young people (aged 13-25) by offering counselling, drug and alcohol advice and support, information and guidance, healthier life styles, community activities and personal safety.
Why we do it
Some young people have had very troubled lives, and need additional help to make well informed life choices. Others need support to help them face the future feeling safer, secure, confident and socially aware of the opportunities available to them. Many need an adult who need a suitable role model without our help these vulnerable young people will not realise that life can be so much more fulfilling.

We offer Counselling, educational workshops, drug and alcohol educational workshops, practical workshops for on diet and nutrition and we work in collaboration with other appropriate agencies.
Training, qualifications & experience
All of our Counsellors are qualified to Diploma level and all BACP Registered Members.
Member organisations *
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
