About Rekindle

Rekindle is a young person’s mental health charity, supporting those aged 16-25 years old. We are based in Newtown and support people living across Mid Wales and the Shropshire borders, offering remote sessions when transportation is a barrier.

Rekindle was founded in 1997 by a group of people who had all experienced mental health problems within their own families.

Our vision, mission and values were all written in collaboration with our clients:
• Vision: To ensure that all young people have ready access to good mental health support.
• Mission: To make a positive difference to the mental health of 16 to 25-year-olds: to build resilience and to enable them to lead healthy lives.

Rekindle’s core services are:

1-2-1 Recovery Support: Tailored support encompassing every aspect of a young person’s life; housing, relationships, work, volunteering, training, finances, confidence building, life skills, resilience, and more. Young people build skills and receive advice, guidance and practical support to overcome any challenges that may be barriers to good mental health.

Counselling: Talking therapy gives young people a safe and non-judgemental space for them to talk about things that are troubling them.

Activities: A chance for young people to connect with others, build confidence and try something new. For example, creative workshops with the Oriel Davies gallery, cooking classes, walking groups, yoga and physical activity opportunities.

All our services are free, and we receive funding via donations and grants.
