Supporting York St John Communities Centre

Your donation makes a great difference!

It helps us to cover the costs of providing free services such as our drop-ins, emotional support and self-development groups, bereavement groups and parent and family drop-ins.

As our income grows, so too does our staff team of counsellors, coaches, and group facilitators. Anything that you are able to donate can help support the work we do and the services that we offer to our community.
