Off The Record has been providing a safe place for young people to talk about their problems and issues for 40 years. Enabling young people to overcome problems, gain confidence and self-awareness and to find ways to get their lives back on track. Our services have expanded to include not only a safe place and 1:1 counselling but also group work and support for young carers.

OTR is very cost effective, with frontline services provided by trained and qualified volunteers, many of whom are former clients and all of whom wish to give back to their community. In order to continue our valuable work we increasingly rely on the generous support of individuals and organisations to provide financial gifts, donations and services. Some examples where your generous donations have a direct impact on our Young People are:

  • £10 provides an arts and craft session for young carers
  • £40 provides all the OTR introductory services a young person needs plus the first hour's counselling
  • £50 provides food and drinks for the young carers groups for a month
  • £320 provides a young person with support and 8 one-to-one counselling sessions 
  • £400 will provide a groupwork session for 6-8 young people
