The in-school counselling service helps children aged 4 to 11 with a range of issues including bereavement, family breakdown, social difficulties and self-harming.

It offers the service at 16 schools in the areas of Melbourn, Bassingbourn and Gamlingay.

Allyance, which also works with the children’s families and school staff, said experience has shown that intervention early on helps stop things escalating later.

Its services are provided free of charge and the money it raises is used to fund therapists.
