It's good to talk, right?
At YRP we are encouraging our clients and staff to sit down and have a chat over a hot drink.
Because we know it's good to talk and having a good relationship with our clients and understanding their needs means we can adapt our services and the support we are providing them.
How can you help?
By making a donation through this campaign, the funds raised will be used to host a casual chat in a space that will be safe and neutral.
Cherisse Dealtry, chief executive of York Road Project confirms; "Often sitting down with our clients, many of which struggle with talking about personal and difficult issues, we find that a cup of coffee/tea can help to break down some of those trust issues and allows our clients to open-up and feel safe when talking about their history and feelings".
"By taking time to listen and understand we can see a positive change from that very first conversation. Additionally, grabbing a coffee somewhere in a less formal environment can make difficult conversations easier and it shows an invested time in the person".
Thank you for taking the time to read about our campaign encouraging a healthy chat over a hot drink. A £5 donation could pay for a drink between both a client and member of the team, a chance to talk could make all the difference.
