Ongo Talk

Counselling and Life Coaching service

We provide one to one counselling, life coaching and talking support groups for people who want to improve their mental health, emotional well-being and create a brighter future for themselves.

This is a free service if you live within the CLLD (Community Led Local Development) area. Once you've submitted your application, we will let you know if you're eligible. If you are not eligible for this service for free, please get in touch to find out more about what we can do to help.

CLLD is an EU funded programme which aims to make positive change across Scunthorpe. They support businesses and people to gain funding for projects which make a difference to our community. Find out more here.

We also offer wellbeing courses that are held at either our Cole Street office or The Arc in Westcliff. Our courses are part of self-help for positive wellbeing and confidence building. Check out our section ‘training dates’ below to see when the courses are available.
