Brandon Centre History

Our founder, Dr Faith Spicer, was an impressive woman. Back in 1969 she had the idea to set up a support service for adolescents that combined contraceptive advice with counselling and psychotherapy. She was years ahead of her time in offering such a holistic service for young people.
Brandon Cadbury, (of the famous philanthropic chocolatiers) was so impressed by Faith’s work that he donated our current building in Kentish Town to the charity and as a thank you, we named the charity after him in 1984.

We’re so fortunate to continue to have a close relationship with the Cadbury family through The Oakdale Trust who very generously support us on a regular basis and Brandon’s daughter Olivia Tatton-Brown is our very special Patron.
Faith’s vision still drives our work today, as we continue to push the boundaries of innovation to help more young people harness their strengths and become responsible, fulfilled, and healthy young adults.

Our Services

We believe that all young people should be able to access the highest quality care and support in a safe and welcoming environment.

Our mission is to maintain and develop accessible, flexible and professional services. We aim to respond to the psychological, sexual and social needs and challenges of young people under 25 years old.

Brandon Centre services extend to a wide range of adolescent challenges and are based on a psychoanalytic understanding of adolescent development, specialist treatment and preventative provision. We provide a wide range of mental health, wellbeing and parenting support.
We actively welcome self referrals from young people and families.
