Let’s Get Talking is a non-profit Counselling & Psychotherapy Service providing accessible, professional, non-set fee therapy across Ireland.
Project: Let’s Get Talking
Sector: Health and Well-Being
Loan Value: €30,000
Each of their service users is treated according to their needs and not what they can afford to pay.
With a focus on early intervention Let’s Get Talking support adults and children (over 10 years of age) in relation to a wide range of issues ranging from depression, anxiety, stress, relationship issues, addiction, trauma, bullying, eating disorders, parenting issues, and family breakdown support.
We were overjoyed that our funding has helped Let’s Get Talking to engage in services that are beneficial to so many people who have suffered isolation, loneliness and poor mental health conditions during lockdown as a result of the pandemic.
“As a result of Community Finance Ireland’s loan, it is now the case that our organisation is in a stable financial position and ready to move to the next stage of our strategy to further provide mental health services to the community. We have also made a number of key appointments including in Accounts, and Communications and Fundraising. Since COVID-19 we have seen a significant increase in referrals from people who have never engaged in the past with mental health services, which further highlights the need for early intervention services as provided by Let’s Get Talking. Having the support from Community Finance Ireland ensured we could act immediately ensuring we remained accessible to clients by providing online counselling & psychotherapy since March 2020”
