Sudbury's Just Talk Campaign seeking to expand services after relocating to larger premises
A Sudbury-based wellbeing charity is seeking to expand its services to meet rising demand, after announcing a major move into larger premises in the town.
The Just Talk Campaign is preparing to take over the former Suffolk Free Press office in the Borehamgate precinct, after negotiating an affordable arrangement with Babergh District Council, which owns the site.
The charity, which offers one-to-one counselling services and monthly drop-in sessions to support people with their emotional wellbeing, has been desperately searching for a larger base of operations, having outgrown its current premises at the ExploringU Centre for Wellbeing in Station Road.
It plans to be up and running in Borehamgate by the middle of this month.
Psychotherapist Glenda Roberts, co-founder of the Just Talk Campaign, said: “We are so thrilled to have found a suitable new home for the charity, and cannot express how grateful we are to Babergh District Council for supporting us in this way.
“Securing this space is great news for the Sudbury community, as we have been struggling to meet demand for the service.
“There is not a day goes by where someone comes and asks us for help. Now we will have enough space to ensure we can meet the ever-growing demand for the service, ensuring any person struggling with their emotional wellbeing will receive the support they need.
“There are many people within the community who are feeling alone and unheard and desperately need someone to talk to.
“At Just Talk, we believe everyone has the right to be heard and to have someone they can trust. We want those people to know we are here for them.
“We are offering a safe and friendly environment where people of any age or background can come to talk freely about any issue they may have.”
