         Funded by Bedfordshire and Luton Community Foundation's Panacea Fund

Bedford Open Door is a registered charity (No. 1053008) providing an independent, free and confidential counselling service to young people, aged 13-25, in and around Bedford. Counselling is provided by a team of fully trained counsellors who give their time free of charge.


Our clients come from varied backgrounds and often arrive feeling vulnerable and confused. Our aim here at Bedford Open Door is to help empower young people so that they can find positive ways of dealing with their problems.


We have some funding from statutory bodies which covers certain parts of our client group and  certain geographical areas, but we also rely on charitable grants and donations to fund the rest of our service.


We are currently looking for people who are interested in the work we do and would like to support our efforts.


Become a Friend of Bedford Open Door would involve supporting us on a regular basis.


As a charity much time is spent fundraising in order to secure the future of the service. We have a fundraiser that works for us part time, but we are always on the look out for volunteers to join our fundraising team.


Experience in fundraising and marketing would help but is not essential. We are looking for people of all ages with enthusiasm, good ideas and communication skills and above all a belief in the need for the service that we provide to young people.


If you are interested and would like to find out more, please contact the office for more information - 01234 360388
