See below for ways in which you can help us grow.
Eggtooth is social enterprise. A not-for-profit service which works hard to cover as many of its own costs as it can. From selling delicious cappuccinos and mouth-watering meals at The Nest to delivering staff training sessions on mental health.
However, without generous support from local people, companies and grantmakers we simply wouldn’t have the funds to deliver the volume of therapy sessions (2,770 last year) or the number of weekly support groups and creative mentoring programmes that we do.
Demand for our services is rising, and fast. Covid followed by the Cost of Living Crisis has placed even greater pressure on families living in Hastings & Rother. Early intervention is critical when it comes to mental health and extra funding will ensure we can help more young people and avoid long waiting lists.
There are lots of ways in which you can help Eggtooth grow. We appreciate times are tough and please know we are incredibly grateful for any support you can spare. Every penny raised will go directly to helping young people to overcome difficult issues/circumstances in their lives; to talk about painful emotions; to manage their anxieties and to build their self-esteem.
Donations don’t always involve cash. Perhaps you or your workplace has a product/service it could gift to Eggtooth? For example, leaflet printing or marketing support. This wonderful website was designed by the company ifour for free and the difference it has made to Eggtooth has been immense: making more young people, parents and frontline staff aware of our services
