As one of the leading theraputic services in the North East of England, our experienced and professional team of IMPACT staff help make a difference by going the extra mile.
We offer a flexible and bespoke 360 degree approach to services tailored to meet the needs of schools, social care, businesses and communities throughout the North East, all from our headquarters in Sunderland.
We enable local people to rise above difficult circumstances by developing each individual's potential - through building relationships, skills, behaviours, capability, and most of all, confidence.
Our aim is to provide a culturally sensitive and non-judgemental service offering one-to-one and group counselling, mentoring, training and volunteering to support people in living full and meaningful lives.
Whilst top rated by both schools and external companies, our most significant accolade is the trust given to us by families who require our services.
Our belief that excellent service is achieved through the happiness of our staff helps us prioritise our workplace culture.
Throughout many of the schools where we work, Ofsted has commended us.
"It's clearly obvious the impact that this service has on the school. IMPACT appears to be invaluable." said one report.
Taking care of your mental health is important
Over the phone, skype or zoom
Managing your mental health has never been more important. In a time of social distancing and lockdowns, feelings of anxiety and loneliness have become increasingly prevailent.
"Keep in contact with friends and family to keep up social interaction and to make sure the other person is coping. Offer to be an arm of support to those who need it."
Laura Peters, Head of Advice and Information at Mental Health UK
