Broadhurst is pleased to support the following local projects:
The Broadhurst Community Access Project (CAP), click here.
The CAP provides a range of support to individuals who are struggling to get the most out of life. Our professional staff offer friendly, impartial advice on coping with a wide range of daily activities, returning to education or accessing other support services.
The CAP is able to help people who:
- Live in Aldershot, Farnborough or Fleet
- Are adults of working age
- Suffer from mental distress (e.g. depression, anxiety, stress, loneliness, schizophrenia)
- Do not already receive one to one support
- Have a dual diagnosis and who may need support to attend other organisations and activities
The Broadhurst Community Access Project is independent – it is not attached to any medical, psychiatric or social service.
Rushmoor CAB, click here.
The service provided by Rushmoor CAB (Heathlands) supported the recovery of mental health service users through advice and casework. It was funded by Surrey NHS and Broadhurst (for patients who were Hampshire residents) until the end of June 2015, when the North East Hampshire and Farnham CCG took on the funding previously provided by Broadhurst.
In October 2015, Broadhurst agreed to fund a new 3-year ‘Financial Inclusion’ project to provide an extended service with a specific brief to work in community based settings in Aldershot and Farnborough, reaching out through existing networks and agencies to mitigate the adverse impact of austerity on vulnerable clients with mental health conditions. This new service is based at The Wellbeing Centre, click here.
Blooming Marvellous, click here.
The Blooming Marvellous gardening project seeks to improve the mental health and well-being of individuals with mental health difficulties by providing a supported opportunity to volunteer – using gardening to make a visible difference in our local community.
The Vine Centre, click here.
The Vine Centre exists to help change the lives of the most disadvantaged members of our community in North East Hampshire, many of whom have complex needs. Funding from Broadhurst is designed to enhance the provision of mental health support, including through training for key staff and volunteers.
The Source, click here.
The Source Young People’s Charity supports and empowers young people, aged up to 25 living in North-East Hampshire and surrounding areas. Funding from Broadhurst is to support the provision of the Life Coaching Programme for vulnerable and disadvantaged young people with multiple and complex needs, including mental health and/or housing issues.
