How Fundraising Helps

Donations from individuals, organisations and businesses allow us to invest in areas of work where we can see an immediate need, and where there is no other funding. Last year, this donation income allowed us to invest in new projects, that otherwise would not have happened, and expand our existing projects to help more children and adults.

Extending our offer of wellbeing coaching for children and young people, so that every young person in Lancashire who needs this service can access it, with minimal waiting time

Delivering Bounce Forward across schools in North Lancashire – this is a programme which helps young people build resilience at key points in their lives, such as the transition from primary to secondary school

An innovative programme to look at new ways of preventing homelessness and providing safe accommodation for people with long term mental health conditions

Adding a new engagement worker to reach people in communities across Lancashire and help them co-design solutions to wellbeing challenges and to influence decision makers in the NHS and local authorities
