Welcome to the Pear Tree Centre
The Pear Tree Centre is a warm and welcoming one-stop-shop which offers support, information, counselling and benefits advice to anyone who has been diagnosed with a life-changing illness.
It opened in January 2020 following an extensive fundraising drive which attracted fantastic support from the local community. Anyone with a life-changing condition, as well as their families and carers, is welcome to drop in and use the services on offer, which include:
- information and support to help understand diagnosis
- financial and benefits advice
- bereavement support
- children and family support services
- headscarf tying and “feel good” support
- complementary treatments such as Reiki, massage and reflexology
- signposting to other agencies
The centre is open to anyone living in north east Suffolk and south Norfolk. It serves around 50,000 people living in the rural towns and villages around Bungay, Beccles, Kessingland, Southwold, Leiston, Saxmundham, Framlingham, Stradbroke, Fressingfield and Harleston.
The Pear Tree Centre has temporarily closed to keep our staff, volunteers and the public safe.
We are still able to offer advice over the telephone, as well as counselling services online or over the phone. Please call us on 01986 899655 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. We will reopen as soon as the government tells us it is safe to do so.
As a result of the coronavirus outbreak, we have unfortunately had to cancel many of our planned fundraising events during 2020, which means the charity will suffer a considerable loss of income.
During this time we would welcome all donations to help us continue to deliver signposting services, counselling and benefits advice in the community, which will be even more vital than ever:
- A consultation with DANES, our disability advice service, costs £30
- An hour of counselling costs £50
- Benefits and form filling advice costs £30

Please keep safe and look after yourself and your loved ones during this unprecedented time.
Thank you so much for your ongoing support.
