Coming Back After Covid 19

Help us reopen

We need your Help!

Once lock down has been eased enough for Trowbridge Service Users Group to start meeting again we will need a larger space to insure social distancing.

We need to raise £3000 for the use to hire a larger space for a minimum of 6mths. We know we will not be able to offer our full service, but we can offer the basics “Mental health support and friendship.

Our current memberships is over 25 and these individuals are being supported via online group page. But we expect a large influx after lockdown is release.

As we are a peer run and lead group using lived experiences, we are open to everyone with a mental illness via self-referral so we will be the fastest service to access and will probably be used as a bridging service while people are waiting for what will be a very over stretched NHS Mental health service and while referrals to mental health charities are worked through.

About Trowbridge Service Users Group

Set up in February 2018 to fill a gap in mental health support, a service that was based on building social interaction and confidence. We sat under NSH liability insurance which gave us the freedom to run the group from Tesco Community Room which was provided for free.

At the end of 2019 we where told that we could no longer use the NHS insurance, this was going to force the group to close as we had no funding no support. After lot of discussion it was put to the group the options that where available. And the group wanted to keep the group dynamic and choose to set up as a unincorporated group.

So with a mad rush for Trustee and setting up back account in January 2020 we became a official group. We opened up in Westbury and we had started our art sessions at the Town Hall and we where moving forward to look for funding and grants.

The Covid 19 hit and things have been on hold as everything has been shut, so while funding bids are being written we need so funding for extra space to get us back up and providing Trowbridge with a free mental health support.
