The Willow Project

The Willow Project has been set up to provide counselling for young people.

The Willow Project is a registered charity and our main work is offering counselling and support to children and young people, aged 6-19yrs old who are affected by emotional and mental health issues.

We offer this to anyone living in the Wigan borough and this includes Leigh, Tyldesley and Atherton. 

For those that access us for counselling, we also run a weekly support group on Mondays during term time and this is for young people aged 12+. We do different things in the group, including cooking, making things, chatting, playing games and most importantly having fun.

To help to support the family, we offer one to one counselling to parents/carers of the young people that access us, with adults being seen on a different day to young people.

As well as counselling, we also run mental health awareness workshops under our Talk and Listen Campaign (TLC).
