Base 51 Centre for Young People

The Base 51 Counselling Service offers young people a safe and confidential space in which there is an opportunity to explore, identify and understand past and present experiences. Our aim is help young people discover new ways of coping and to feel and think better about themselves and their lives and promote greater well-being.

Being a human being is a very complicated thing and involves all sorts of stuff including happy/sad, easy/difficult, fair/unfair etc etc, its all part of life.
Very often, and for lots of different reasons young people don't want to discuss problems with family or teachers, and that's why we are here; to offer you extra help and support. We want to make sure that you're not dealing with difficult issues that are making you sad, angry and unhappy on your own.

The Laura Centre

The Laura Centre Charity offers bereavement counselling for parents and children. They are located in Leicester and offer a variety of services for families. The Laura Centre is now the sole project of the charity COPE. Gail and Harry Moore founded COPE in 1988 initially focusing on services for children with cancer and their families. Following the sad death of their daughter Laura from Leukaemia, Gail and Harry became aware of the lack of support for families bereaved of a child. This led to them opening the Laura Centre in 1991 to provide theraputic support to anyone bereaved of a child or young person.

Sue's Place

Sue's Place is unique, it is a special place where children and their families can go to find the support and guidance they need to face the future.

Although it is a natural part of life, the death, divorce or separation of someone close can be a distressing and overwhelming experience for anyone. Children experience the pain of loss and separation just as much as adults. Their reactions depend on their age, maturity and understanding of events.
