We are so grateful to have received a generous donation from RoyaleLife to help support our services for young people.
The funding boost from the country’s leader in bungalow living will support the development of specialist young people’s services at our Fareham Wellbeing Centre. The Centre already provides Upturn young people’s service, helping 14 to 18 year-olds with their wellbeing and providing one-to-one and group support.
Caroline Payne, Head of Wellbeing at Fareham Wellbeing Centre, says, “This wonderful donation will enable us to expand our current service for 18-30 year olds in our area, with dedicated staff, 1-1 sessions and both therapeutic and social groups in the community. We are currently putting together this new project and hope to be able to start our service for this age group in the next few months.“
RoyaleLife, whose headquarters in North Boarhunt is not far from the Fareham Wellbeing Centre, say supporting mental health charities is an important role. Chief executive Robert Bull adds, “We are thrilled to be able to support Solent Mind’s vital services, which are a lifeline for people locally. As a company that’s all about creating communities, the idea that anyone could feel isolated or socially anxious is so sad and we are pleased to be able to support Solent Mind’s projects which are tackling the issue.”
The new funding will allow us to increase their provision for young people, running social groups and providing peer support to help people with isolation and social anxiety which can be common issues in this age group. The Fareham Wellbeing Centre will also be running courses to give young people the skills to look after their own wellbeing.
