The Market Place is based in Leeds City centre, it provides both long term and short-term counselling support, youth work support, workshops, group work and a Drop-in service open 7 days a week. All services are free and available for young people in Leeds to support emotional well-being and positive mental health in a safe confidential, non-judgemental environment.

Due to the current situation with coronavirus and being on lockdown, The Market Place has developed a new telephone support service, running between 12-6pm 7 Days a week for ages 11-25.

Fundraising could help with lots of things like:

• Travel Expenses for young people
• Craft material for young people who find it difficult to talk but will engage in creative activities, resources, games etc.
• In the current Covid situation- extra training for staff around working online.
• Support with additional cost from telephone support.
• Resources to have around the service when things start to ease. E.g. hand sanitiser, masks, anti-bacterial cleaning wipes, anti-bacterial soap etc.

Everyone who makes a donation will go into a prize draw that these local businesses have kindly donated.

Please do make sure you leave your email in the comments of the donation so we can get in touch with the winners which will be drawn at the end of the week.
