Sovereign Healthcare provide vital support for wellbeing service
Bradford-based Sovereign Health Care has provided vital grant funding which will support the extension of our wellbeing service this year.
Based in Saltaire, Sovereign Health Care is one of the UK’s leading healthcare cash plan providers, and has provided a £4,250 boost via its Community Programme.
The donation will allow us to extend and enhance our wellbeing offer, which currently delivers 80 hours of support a week across initiatives in Bradford and Craven.
We extended our groups into Craven for the first time last year, giving the chance for people living in more rural areas to access groups close to home in Settle and Skipton,
says Mind in Bradford CEO Helen Davey.
“We started our first Urdu-speaking peer support group, which is a safe space for people from South Asian communities to talk about their mental health and support each other in their first language.”
“We also started weekend groups, opening up the wellbeing service to people who work during the week and may not have previously been able to attend groups.”
This donation will help us to ensure our wellbeing service remains accessible to as many people as possible.
Our Wellbeing groups include structured courses with wellbeing and recovery-focused activities, offered face to face and online.
Last year we supported 3,402 attendances at wellbeing groups, which are delivered by a team of wellbeing practitioners and volunteers.
Sovereign Health Care’s Community Programme aims to support charities and voluntary groups who are tackling problems, improving the lives of disadvantaged and vulnerable people and providing opportunities and facilities that can transform the quality of life.
