Open Door Charity is one of Merseyside’s most dynamic and progressive independent charities. Designed by young people, for young people, we deliver a range of award-winning services that improve the wellbeing and mental health of young people and adults, using innovation, arts and culture as catalysts for change.
Committed to providing free, fast and effective mental health support at the point that people need it most, we focus on supporting young people and adults because evidence shows that this age group are particularly short-changed by mainstream mental health support. By helping our members to find the tools, relationships and places that help them to feel great and live well, as early in life as possible, we will have the most impact.
Creativity and shared experience is at the heart of everything we do; we innovate, we collaborate, and we push for lasting change.
All of our service portfolio is designed by young people, for young people. Built upon intertwining lived experience with some of the most impactful therapeutic approaches available.
The starting point is always to become a member of the charity, which is free with no waiting lists, then pick and choose the activities, events and services which are right for you at that time. You can access as much as you like, as often as you like.
Our innovative range of creative therapeutic support options, which are at the heart of our charity ethos and approach, are delivered by a frontline team of up to 100 Peer Mentors. This ensures that the support process is wholly unique and built upon shared lived experience. Overall a positive route towards learning new skills to feel better now and stay better, designed and delivered by young people for young people.
