We became a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) on 1st April 2014 an continue to offer independent, non-stigmatising services based in the local community that are accessible to all.

Good mental health is just one aspect of general wellbeing and we believe that everyone can lead a full, active and rewarding life. We work with the people who use our services to support them in achieving their goals and engaging in their communities. Our goal is to try to help people experiencing emotional or mental distress to regain their full potential in life and work.
