Northorpe Hall Child & Family Trust is here to support children facing challenges to their emotional well-being and mental health. We are a charity supporting children, young people and families in Kirklees, in partnership with other services and organisations.
We support over three thousand local children every year, providing telephone support to families and professionals, counselling, mental health support, mentors and confidence building group activities to help children grow strong and well. We provide flexible, caring and effective support to those who need it. Young people rate our services 9 out of 10, and they tell us that we have really made a difference to their lives.
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.
