Haye Mill is happy to offer free counselling as per our Charity Constitution, however we do ask that if you are able to make a donation to the Charity in exchange of such help then it enables us to carry on our work that much more easily.

We have some basic running costs and some folk like to feel they are contributing in a special way or through a specific area of interest. Below is a list of such areas so if you would like to donate to a specific need or item then it would be most appreciated and gives some sense of ownership of the Centre.

Who Pays?Counselling and Healing are free. Haye Mill is a Charitable Trust that is entirely funded by donations from the public and local businesses. No one pays for counselling, although a number of former clients have made donations or covenants. Sponsering businesses have a priority call upon the Charity facilities. Complementary therapies available at the Mill are paid for by the client directly to the Practitioner concerned.The Charity since its inception has assisted many hundreds of people in overcoming all manner of emotional and physical difficulties and developed the holistic therapeutic environment.Our NeedWe desperately need funds. Small charities such as Haye Mill lose out to the larger national charities, for they can more easily advertise and appeal for funding, having a wider range of operation and better known profile.We, on the other hand, need to be quiet and have a low profile in order to work effectively.  That means we are for ever on a financial knife edge.

There are so many different aspects to our work and calls upon our funds that it is impossible to prioritise successfully.

Financial FeasibilityHow a person views the Project not only colours their perspective but tends to predetermine their judgement as to whether the venture is a financial success or lame duck. It is a far from clear situation. One the one hand it can be viewed as a charity providing educational opportunities and unique complementary care to the population of East Cornwall and West Devon, and a much wider populous via video and website. It is an Authoritative Statement by example on Alternative Philosophy in a working, therapeutic and holistic environment. It should also be noted that the Charity makes available subsidised or free care to clients in particular therapies. This takes the mainly middle class phenomena of complementary care to other socio-economic groups, often to those people most in need of it and unable to afford it.On the other hand the Project can be viewed as a financial business enterprise operating through an Agency of professional therapists and educators, and developing a horticultural income stream, taking great heed of market forces and opportunities and covering investment risk prudently rather than accepting needless philosophical constraint or ethic. The venture would need to be seen as a ‘good risk’ investment. The single largest item of expense would be the capital and interest repayments.The former would undoubtedly be able to call down considerable interest from grant giving bodies, seeing such ‘investment’ in the charity as a worthwhile placement of capital, enabling the charity to promulgate its principles in line with the Grant Giver’s brief – particularly if the charity would not be able to fulfil its vision without the grant award but have a large degree of certainty of success with it. The latter would need to see risk assessment and financial return outside of unpredictable donations or grants, and so not be dependant upon them, and financial feasibility placed strictly within projected accounts of profit and loss.It is difficult to see how the two can marry in a financial package that would be acceptable to both approaches. The Trustees have chosen the more difficult route and seek donations and grants rather than prejudice the Charity ethos and principles.

Please help us to help others, and please help us to work with the whole of God’s creation and respect all the kingdoms within it.

Please think about it.

Covenants

Would you consider making a donation or, perhaps, even a covenant to the Charity to support it in trying to meet the needs of the community?  Even the smallest amount can make a difference, and if you sign a gift aid declaration we can get any tax that you might have paid on that amount.  Do contact us at info@hayemill.com for further details.
