Acorn’s New Premises

Acorn has moved into new premises in Worthing.  We now have a bright, modern office and a counselling room in Pilgrim House, St Dunstan’s Road, Worthing.  We join a group of other friendly services who work from the building, and we look forward to developing our services in our new home!





Acorn Appoints PatronDr Tim Fooks

Acorn is pleased to announce the appointment of Dr Tim Fooks as its Patron. Dr Fooks was appointed High Sheriff of West Sussex in March 2020, and holds the role for a year.

Dr Fooks recently retired as a GP in Pulborough, but has returned to work for the NHS in the current coronavirus crisis.  Part of the role is to work with the voluntary sector. Dr Fooks said “I am delighted to become a Patron of Acorn Pregnancy Counselling Centre. In my role as a GP I would see patients affected by unintended pregnancy or pregnancy loss, and I recognise the great value of Acorn’s work in offering clients a safe place to explore their feelings and their options at times like this.”
