We're delighted to report we've been awarded a total of £10,000 by The National Lottery Community Fund to help our community thrive. The funding will be used to facilitate a course of in-person workshops held in Twickenham to support more adults struggling with mental health issues in South-West London.
At a time when cost of living concerns are causing a decline in mental health nationwide, this funding will allow Art & Soul to deliver 15 adult workshops throughout 2023. Working in partnership with local organisations to refer participants who require mental health support, these sessions will allow us to reach out to more people through activities which help manage good mental health.
The National Lottery Community Fund supports projects that bring people together, build strong relationships across communities, and help more people reach their potential. With a critical role to play in supporting communities, each year the projects they back reach more than 5 million people and help tackle things that matter, from mental health and loneliness to providing young people with skills and employment opportunities.
