We are a charity based in Worthing, West Sussex, that offers counselling to women and their partners who find themselves unexpectedly pregnant, who have experienced a pregnancy loss, such as miscarriage or stillbirth, or have experienced abortion.

We recognise that deep feelings can accompany these events, and we offer space and time to explore and process them.

Our services are free, confidential and non-judgemental. We see men as well as women, and offer counselling face to face, by phone, or via Zoom.

You are welcome to contact us to find out how we can help you.

 " I can’t believe how much speaking to someone once a week changed my life
at such a hard time. Wonderful charity". (Client)

Acorn’s vision is   “For the Worthing area to be a place where no one has to experience pregnancy loss or unintended pregnancy unsupported, and where all young people are able to learn the story of pregnancy."

As we are a non-medical agency we cannot refer directly for an abortion. Therefore, you can be sure of impartial support.
We will discuss all options with you and can signpost you to other organisations and agencies whatever decision you reach
