On April 5th 1976 in a derelict former upholstery shop in Middle Lane, Open Door Young People’s Consultation Service was officially launched. A few years later, a donation from John Paul Getty Jnr. enabled Trustees to purchase the lease and to secure Open Door as a welcoming space dedicated to improving the mental health and life chances of young people in the heart of the community.
Open Door continues to operate from its original Crouch End base and in 2013 a new service was opened in Tottenham. We also now deliver therapy services in secondary schools and since the Covid pandemic, we are also able to offer appointments online.
