It is with great sadness that we have to report that It’s Your Choice will be closing on 31st March 2022 after 35 years of delivering services in the New Forest.
The charity which currently supports around 1000 young people with their emotional health each year has been directly affected by the lack of longer term funding opportunities over the last two years of the pandemic.
Although they were successful in drawing down government support via the Lottery to continue and meet the immediate needs during the pandemic, applications for post pandemic funding have been oversubscribed leaving It’s Your Choice in this unfortunate position.
It’s Your Choice are in conversation with other organisations and the local authority regarding provision of services for the New Forest going forward.
In the meantime please see below for further information and possible pathways of support.
