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.
How we do it
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 is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
