Relief in Need grant supports Active Minds

We were delighted to hear that Croydon Relief in Need Charity had awarded us a grant of £20,000 a year for three years to support the work of our Active Minds service. Relief in Need have been supporting our work for a number of years and we are delighted that they are able to continue to give financial help. We are most grateful. You can find out more about Active Minds here.
