Aims & Objectives: To support volunteers with a mental health background in undertaking a variety of routine clerical and administration tasks for a wide range of voluntary, community and statutory organisations. This allows clients to learn new skills, make new friends, improve confidence and well being. All this is done informally with cup of tea and a chat. We offer a free service to organisations for small mailshots, paper collating, folding leaflets and newsletters, making-up information packs and simple crafts
Who is the project aimed at? Clients of Mind Beneficaries – voluntary and communitygroups
Project partners & funders: Various small donations and grants
Timescales: Until April 2020
Key Achievements: We have helped 10 groups with tasks during the last year and received positive feedback about the work carried out. Clients have moved on to undertake training, volunteering opportunities and employment.
