No5 Anniversary

Building Memories to Celebrate our 50th Anniversary

No5 opened its doors in 1971 to support young people’s mental health in Reading. In 2021 we’d like you to join us in celebrating our 50th and reflect on half a century of No5! Take time to look back on your memories as we also look to the future.

We’re seeking anyone who has had a connection with No5 and a story they would like to share. Perhaps you received counselling, volunteered at No5 as a counsellor, worked as a supervisor, a trustee, volunteer or supported our work with young people as a funder or community partner in Reading. We’d love to hear from you!

Please use the form below to send us your stories. We would like to share these as part of our 50th Anniversary celebrations in 2021 and beyond. Ideally, including your first name in our communications and social media to encourage others to come forward. However, you can also do this anonymously.

We are planning a gala evening late in 2021 for our supporters and friends. As someone who has shared a memory telling us about the role No5 played in your life, you will be notified of any events we hold so please ensure you include an email and/or a phone number.
