A charity which helps disadvantaged youngsters deal with mental health issues is searching for a new home.

Kids Inspire wants to move from its Fox Crescent, Chelmsford, home to new larger premises in the area.

The charity, which helps children who are faced with social, economical or educational difficulties, is asking for help to finalise a shortlist of suitable 3,200sq ft premises available from December.

So far, nothing has been found which satisfies all of the charity's needs including a space for individual therapy.

Sue Bell, chief executive officer and clinical director of Kids Inspire, said: "We have found ourselves at an operational turning point as the building we currently rent will no longer be available from December this year.

"This is a positive move for us as the need for our services has rapidly increased, as have our resources to meet those demands, so we really have outgrown the space we are currently in.

“In addition to ongoing lines of enquiry behind the scenes, we are reaching out to those who know us best – local communities.

"Via Facebook and Twitter, we are asking our friends and followers to share with us any information about potential leads for new premises."

Kids Inspire work with more than 2,700 children and young people with complex mental health needs across Essex.

The charity is open to ideas for the new premises in all areas across Essex.
