Our Strategy 2014-20

We aim to reach more young adults 18-20 years old, offer more timely support to people in crisis and early help to prevent people from needing long-term mental health services. We want to tackle the multi-discrimination and stigma which people can experience in their daily lives.  We plan to diversify our income sources further by opening more charity shops, moving into managing rental property and developing a commercial training service.
