About The Moving On Project
The Moving On Project was set up in 1995 to offer free counselling for young people in the Fareham and Gosport areas who were faced with issues affecting their education and progression into adult life.
We started life as a local charity and were so successful at providing help for young people that we became part of Hampshire County Council. In 2011, following re-organisation by the Council, we decided to re-form as a charity, to ensure the service continued as effectively as it had done in the past.
As a small, local, charity, funding is always a priority for us. We appreciate any donations, small or large, from individuals, organisations or local businesses. If you’d like to support our free Counselling services it’s easy to make a donation instantly – just click the link at the top of the page.
We are continually looking to increase the support available to young people in Fareham and Gosport this can be on-site counselling in local schools, youth centres and GP surgeries. We are keen to build relationships with local agencies who share our enthusiasm in promoting the positive emotional and mental health of young people in the community.
If you would like to discuss the possibility of facilitating counselling in your organisation please contact our manager on 01329 822331.
The Moving On Project is managed by a hard working team of trustees with an immense amount of experience, knowledge and wisdom between them. Together, they set the direction for the charity, ensuring that the services we offer remain relevant, and delivered to the highest professional standards.
