Why support us?

We have a proven track record in good partnership working and delivering commissioned public health and employability services evidenced by research and evaluation.  But what we’re really proud of is being a truly local organisation that touches the lives of the people we work with, and in turn has a positive impact on their families and the wider community.

Last year alone 932 clients attended 2,835 sessions here at the premises in Ashington, and we provided information and advice by phone and email in response to 5,074 enquiries. These services are free to clients, but that means we need to raise significant funds each year to provide them to the people we help.

Donations of any size are gratefully received from individuals and organisations; if you can help to support our work in any way please click the Donate with Just Giving button above, or call in person if you’re in Ashington. It really will make a difference.


Case studies

We're proud of the range of services and support we provide for people in Northumberland, and the positive effect it has on communities in our region. 

These case studies, written by our volunteers, counsellors and staff and under our previous name of Women's Health Advice Centre, give an insight into how we have made a difference.

We need more volunteers! Click here to find out how you can get involved or read volunteer case studies below.



We love to get feedback; it helps us to keep improving the services and support we offer.

If you have any comments about the Cygnus Support or suggestions about any of our services, please contact us; we'd love to hear from you.
