Further to our £85,000 donation to Centrepoint, we can now provide an update from Ben Bowden, Centrepoint's Regional Fundraising Manager.
“I’m pleased to say that we’ve so far recruited one mental health advisor, one therapist, and one substance use worker to post, all of whom will be starting on the 16th July with us to begin operations. We have one mental health advisor yet to be appointed.
With your donation from and some additional monies from the Co-operative Bank, we are fully funded for the mental health offer for a minimum of one year where we will look to seek commission funding to re-fund.
Our next big challenge for development priorities is moving onto our employment and training offer, and our sports offer now to start making sure that we are providing the right opportunities for young people once we have got them healthy and stable thanks to the help that you have provided!”
Thank you so much for your continued support and donations. Your help is allowing us to make a real difference to people's lives.
