What they don't say

There is a mountain of information available about mental health. It’s not unexpected that Doctors may not tell all there is.

We need volunteers to help with our exercise clubs.

If you want to help us help, we’d love you to join our team. Whatever you enjoy doing, and however much time you can commit, there’s a volunteer role for you.

What People Say?​

These weekly sessions were invaluable to the service users. It was always well attended and there were many regular clients who would attend every week, often arriving before staff.
Steve Bristow
Community Mental Health Nurse
I have no doubt that this has been the singular most effective mental health project I have seen in my 30 years as a social worker and hope very much it returns very soon.
Vishnu Singh
Southwark, Social Worker
the greatest success was the integration of a ‘revolving door’ service user who has been able to gain a qualification, reduce his medication and obtain full-time employment.
