Youth Concern Trust Celebrates 25 Years !

Netteswell-based charity YCT is celebrating 25 years of delivering emotional and mental health support to children and young people. Over 25 years the service has grown to include counselling in each of Harlow’s five secondary schools and the tertiary college, as well as at YCT House, Occasio House and in a variety of community venues in East Herts. Recognising the effectiveness of intervening early, YCT has developed to also provide creative and play therapies in 26 West Essex primary schools and 2 special schools. The children and young people can refer themselves, or are referred by schools, family members or partner agencies. Director Robert Locke explains, “We have been holding a range of events during the year to mark

our 25 years in Harlow. We were very pleased to host a ministerial visit for Edward Timpson, Education Minister in May, and a Summer Garden Party in Little Hallingbury in July. It was amazing to bring people together to celebrate on such a fantastic day in such a beautiful setting. YCT works extremely hard supporting hundreds of children and young people every year and it is great to see so many people celebrating our work.” To continue the celebrations into the autumn YCT will

be presenting a talk on “Helping Children Thrive: what cutting edge brain science can tell us” by Dr. Margot Sunderland from the Child Mental Health Centre.
