The Hanne & Co Charity Committee are delighted to announce that the Hanne & Co staff nominated charity for 2015-2016 is Wandsworth & Westminster Mind!
Wandsworth & Westminster Mind is a charity that offers advice and support to people in the community with mental health needs. They assist their client base to access counselling, housing, voluntary work, employment, peer support and a wide range of social, leisure and learning opportunities. They offer a personalised approach offering tailored support programmes for their client base.
Mental health problems are common and affect 1 in 4 people in Britain at some point in their lives. Mental health problems are therefore likely to impact us, our family members or our friends at some stage in our lives. Despite this there is still much stigma attached to mental health problems and what different diagnosis mean. It is therefore vital for organisations such as Wandsworth & Westminster Mind to be supported in providing a valuable service within our communities.
The Charity Committee will work throughout the year to fundraise for the charity through various events.
