Formerly Mind in Havant we have expanded and improved over the past years. We have increased our area of benefit – hence the change of name to reflect the increase in area
We started off with one member of staff which was quickly followed by the recruitment of volunteers. Today we provide both Wellbeing services and Advocacy. Our staff numbers have increased to 13 with a big increase in volunteer numbers as well. We still have our main office in Leigh Park but much bigger than the original cupboard we had all those years ago! We also now have an office in Fareham and one in Bordon.
We have been privileged to work with a large number of people over the years many of whom have in turn acted as volunteers once they have recovered.
We are not resting on our laurels but continuing to respond to gaps in services. Currently we are starting to set up a Counselling Service and would love to hear from any qualified counsellors who would like to donate a little time each week
