Press release: The Bugler Foundation donates £20,000 to Signpost Counselling

Aug 26, 2021

Watford, England – The Bugler Foundation is pleased to have provided a donation of £20,000 to Signpost Counselling.

Signpost Counselling is the Bugler Foundation Charity of the Year, and is fully committed to counselling, coaching and supporting young people aged 10-25 living in South and West Hertfordshire to help them overcome problems in their lives.

The Bugler Foundation recognises that mental health is a top priority, in particular across the Covid-19 pandemic which has had such an impact on mental wellbeing of young people. The donation of £20,000 will provide vital funds for Signpost, and will enable them to add additional administrative and professional staff hours to help them attend to the growing number of young people who have reached out to them for support.

Funding from the Bugler Foundation in the past helped Signpost quickly respond to lockdown, putting in place online documents for counsellors and training in Zoom (ensuring compliance with GDPR). Clients did not miss any sessions as telephone or video was immediately offered.

Now that lockdown has eased, support can once again be offered at their Watford office. The Bugler Foundation last month provided new furniture including tables, chairs, sofas and soft furnishings and helped install soft and natural lighting, ensuring that the counselling rooms are a comfortable, quiet and safe space for young people to meet with Signpost’s friendly and understanding team.

All at Signpost Counselling and the Bugler Foundation believe that mental health is vital, and are confident that this latest donation will contribute to helping young people overcome problems in their lives.
