The purpose of the site is to ultimately provide the UK with a huge counselling support network, enabling those in distress to find a counsellor close to them and appropriate for their needs. This is a free, confidential service that will hopefully encourage those in distress to seek help. The website also contains a number of sections on emotional disorders (types of distress section) and provides some useful statistics. Every counsellor on the site who has submitted their profile has either sent a copy of their qualifications and insurance cover to us, or is registered with a professional body online with recognised codes of ethics and practice, this way we can be assured of their professionalism.

The Bone Cancer Awareness Trust was set up by the family and friends of Luke Bradwell, who passed away on the 3rd January 2012 after a valiant fight with Osteosarcoma. They aim to raise awareness of bone cancer to promote early diagnosis, as this is one of the most important factors influencing outcome. Bone Cancer Awareness Trust is working with the Bone Cancer Research Trust to achieve this goal.
