“I needed some help. And they said, ‘Well actually we can help you’.”Michael used our Benefits for Better Mental Health Service this year.
Through supporting Oxfordshire Mind, trusts, foundations and other grantmakers are able to help people of all ages in Oxfordshire experiencing mental health issues. Grantmakers help us to ensure our services are fully funded, resilient and meet the needs of those supported. They help to fund a wide range of services, including:
- our work with children and young people, such as the Mental Wealth Academy
- our physical activity and wellbeing programmes, such as Walking for Wellbeing.
- our benefits advice service Benefits for Better Mental Health.
Most recently, they’ve helped us to respond to the challenges brought by Covid-19, and to help our service users through this most difficult year.
‘I find the calls very uplifting and motivating. I don’t feel like getting up some days but when you call this helps me to find purpose and motivation.’Staff at our Abingdon Hub supported Lucy* through lockdown by making regular telephone calls.
