Last year we helped over 355,000 people, thanks to you.

OCD Action would not be able to carry out its life-changing work without the time and money generously donated by individuals and charitable Trusts throughout the country. Last year, we directly helped 2,279 people through our project work and a further 335,932 people through our website, our forums and our downloadable information resources.

We are seeing demand for our services shoot up as our profile increases. And we now predict that next year our capacity will need to increase by at least 100%. In order to cope and carry out our plans for this year, we need to ensure we have enough volunteers and that we can raise at least £300,000.
