In 2015 Lifelink worked with over 6800 adults and young people through one to one counselling, group work and holistic therapies
Established in 1992 Lifelink began as Royston Stress Centre, a small support group for locals with addiction issues and a response to the stress levels and demands of the area. Founded on the philosophy that ‘all people are unique’, Lifelink believes that each individual has personal strengths and resources which can be unlocked with the right support. These are values which hold strong today and since Lifelink’s initial opening in 1992 huge developments have been made in the type of services offered which can now be offered. The original local group went on to become the founding Board of Directors, an innovative project for the time. Lifelink has the positive aim of working with people to help them deal with and manage negative/high stress levels more effectively, increase their ability to make positive changes and improve overall well-being and quality of life.
Lifelink has grown beyond ‘just a charity’ and now works as a highly-established social enterprise, acting to serve the needs of young people, adults, communities and businesses. In 2015 Lifelink worked with over 6,800 adults and young people through one to one counselling, group work and holistic therapies. Now tendering for contracts and funding and working in partnership with numerous educational, voluntary, custodial and statutory partners, Lifelink’s vision is to ensure every person we work with is healthier and happier where they work, live and learn.
