In 2019  Keighley Town Council agreed to fund project work by AWC-C to provide access to longer term counselling for residents who have a range of complex needs which impact on their mental health. The council recognised a project needed longer term funding and agreed to fund the project for 3 years.  As we have no statutory grants or guaranteed income, through this award we have been able to provide approximately 182 hours of individual therapy.  Group work has been undertaken with 3 existing local organisations providing training and personal development opportunities in relation to anxiety and depression as well as communication and confidence skills.  It is only because of this funding that we have been able to reach so many people within the local community and we hope that this collaboration between the council and AWC-C, as a local community mental health service, will continue in order to benefit the most needy within our locality.

Outcomes from evaluation and feedback from sponsored users contribute to shaping our service provision and where relevant, is tailored to meet cultural needs.

Awards for All – Thanks to funding from the Big Lottery Fund of £9778 which helped make a real difference to our Community Connections project. Participants aged over 55 years reported being more hopeful and better motivated living in a brighter future.

Sovereign supported us to deliver targeted interventions and opportunities that build users social engagement, confidence, integration into community life and the world of work.
