About WISH

The WISH Centre is a London based charity that prevents self harm, abuse and exploitation of young people. We are a community based model that provides therapy and counselling in schools and at our Centre, plus peer support groups, out of hours help, and advice and training. The WISH Centre is a free service for young people ages 10-25 years.

The WISH Centre started in the London Borough of Harrow, NW London in 2004.  In 2016 we opened a centre in Merton SW London and are providing services in Camden Central London. We have been evaluated by the Centre for Mental Health who confirm our 81% self harm recovery rates and recommend that our Peer Support Group Model is commissioned throughout the UK.
