Kernos is 12 years old!

The Kernos Centre opened in Friar Street, Sudbury on the 1st April 2003 – and we are honoured and extremely pleased that our 12th Anniversary has been celebrated by our selection as the local charity beneficiary of the 2015 Sudbury Fun Run.

Kernos was launched at the Sudbury Masonic Hall by Mayor Nigel Bennett – our start-up funding was provided by the Scarman Trust Community Millennium Award – and, in the 12 years since then, nearly 2,500 people from Sudbury and the surrounding area have benefitted from our services.

Over one third of those have been Children and Young People, and the majority of those have had to rely on charitable funding – or the money we receive from donations – in order to receive treatment, since many don’t have families who are able to help them financially.

From 78 clients in our first year, today our team of 11 professional counsellors now treat upwards of 300 people with emotional and psychological problems every year.

The Kernos Centre helps such people to achieve long-term sustainable health and well-being outcomes, but we are totally dependent on voluntary funding to be able to carry out this important work.

If you would like to help Kernos by providing some of this vital funding, you can do so either by:

1) sending a cheque, made out to ‘The Kernos Centre’, to Kernos Centre, 32-34 Friars Street, Sudbury, Suffolk, CO10 2AG


2) clicking on the ‘Donate Now’ button at the top of this screen, and following the instructions

If you are a taxpayer, your contribution could also be eligible for Gift Aid – which means that every £10 you contribute is worth £12.50 to Kernos. For a Gift Aid Declaration form, please contact the Centre – either at the above address, by phone on 01787 882883, or by e-mail at
