About time2talk

Time2Talk operate solely within Daventry and South Northamptonshire.  We are not affiliated with any of the other Time2Talks across the country.  Our official resigtered name is Daventry Information and Counselling Serivce but we have operated under the name of Time2Talk since the 1980s. 

Time2Talk has been around since 1990 and we are a registered charity. All our services are free to those aged under 25.

The service is operated day to day by trained staff and volunteers and the organisation is overseen by a board of trustees who are themselves volunteers.

In the face of increasing threats and challenges and with continued support, we are determined to maintain our unique service in the district because no one else is doing it like we do.  We believe that the young people in our area should have a service they want and can access on their own terms as far as possible.

We are independent but very much a part of a network of similar agencies in Northamptonshire and we work closely with other organisations that provide services for young people.

Although based in the Daventry District we are involved in projects all over the county of Northamptonshire.
