About Us

The Link is a Community Interest Company or a CIC for short, which means we are motivated by making a positive change rather than making money.  We believe that nobody should have to face emotional distress alone, so we provide a variety of therapeutic services, activities, training and events to support children, young people and families who are facing challenges in relation to mental health.


The Link was established in 2010 when our Founder and inspiring Managing Director, Tina Jackson identified that there wasn't enough help for children and young people when it came to mental health, there wasn't anything to help when issues were just starting only when they reached crisis point, so she established The Link!
