No5 Young People has been chosen to benefit from the next round of the Co-op Local Community Fund.
Alyson Brickley, Director at No5 Young People said: “We’re excited to be able to give the local community the opportunity to make a difference to young people’s mental health support through Co-op membership. It’s great that the people of Reading can earn rewards when picking up their Co-op food and at the same time support free counselling through No5 Young People!”
As a Co-op member every time you buy selected own-brand products and services, 1% of the money you spend can go towards supporting the delivery of counselling to young people in the Reading community help them take a practical approach to their difficulties, learn resilience and how to support themselves. There are several stores in the city and surrounding areas so you’ll come across a Co-op near you! The Co-op funding round closes on 24 October 2020 so you’ve got lots of shopping time to make a big difference!
