We are a charity supporting children’s mental and emotional health in Kirklees. We support hundreds of local children and their parents every year, providing counselling, mentors and confidence building activities to help children grow strong and well.

Northorpe Hall is the sixteenth century house in Mirfield, West Yorkshire, which was donated by Audrey Barker to set up the charity in 1963.  The hall, refurbished barn and gardens are available for hire for meetings, conferences, events and celebrations, including weddings.  All income from room hire supports the charity.
