This record was put together to raise money for Crisis Counselling, based in Erskine, Scotland. They provide counselling and support to people who need it, when they need it.
Crisis provides early intervention, specialist therapeutic services and non time limited support.
The number of clients supported by Crisis since 1996 has reached over 15,000, and they now receive an average of 1500 referrals per year.
2007 - 2008: referrals reached 1468, of those 620 were young people aged 16 and under.
The children and adolescents were affected by domestic violence, street violence, parental addiction, addictive behaviours, self-harming, family breakup, trauma, bereavement, bullying, exclusion, restructured family systems, abuse.
This service is under increasing financial pressure and without support may cease to exist. We know this because one of our close friends, and an artist on this record, used the service and made us aware of the difficulties securing funding Crisis currently face. They saved his life and save many more on a daily basis taking direct action to help those in need.
Please support Crisis by buying this record. All proceeds with go to helping sustain such an important and valued service.
Thank you. xo
