Our Values

​Our work is underpinned by our values:

  • Service and Quality

  • Integrity

  • Client Focus

  • Respect

  • Inclusivity

  • Collaboration

  • Sustainability

Our services are planned, coproduced and evaluated.  Our approach is person-centred and recovery-driven. Our team is trained and supervised. Our trustees and our participants are involved in our decisions.  Our information governance and health & safety commitments comply with industry standards. Our funding and spending is managed and overseen by our Board of Trustees.

We believe in community collaboration. We proudly work with other voluntary, community or social enterprise sector organisations in both informal and formal partnerships. This includes agreements to share participants, knowledge, training, skills, contracts and funding. We help:

  • individuals with great ideas to get them to fruition.

  • smaller charities with development and funding ideas.

  • larger charities, NHS and local authorities understand what's happening at grass roots level.

Our Funding

We are affilated with Mind, but our funding decisions are made locally. We receive no central funding from Mind.

Some of our services are funded by local NHS. Some projects are funded by community grants (some of which are supported by Mind).
Other projects and intiatives are funded by YOUR FUNDRAISING.

How to Contact Us:

We are proud to be part of Mind

Even though 1 in 4 people have mental health problems, most of us don’t get the help we need.
We're fighting for mental health. For support. For respect. For you.
