Barratt and David Wilson Homes donates £1,000 to us

We have received a donation of £1,000 from local homebuilder Barratt and David Wilson Homes to support their work in mental health services.

We have received a donation of £1,000 from local homebuilder Barratt and David Wilson Homes to support their work in mental health services.

The housebuilder’s donation will help to support our recently launched ‘Dad’s Matter’ course. This course, which runs alongside the ‘Mum’s Matter’ sessions, and will ensure the provision of support for Dads during the perinatal period (from expecting a baby up to the child being two years old).

The donation will also enhance and extend the reach of our services, including our award-winning STOP Suicide campaign which empowers local communities and individuals to prevent suicide. With an estimated one in five people experiencing suicidal thoughts, STOP Suicide equips the local community with the knowledge and skills to spot warning signs, ask directly about suicide and help those feeling suicidal to stay safe. The campaign has had a focus on male suicide in recent years due to the fact three in four suicides are by men.

Catherine Keating, Community Fundraiser said: “We are so grateful for Barratt and David Wilson Homes’ support and for helping us to raise awareness. Donations such as this enable us to enhance our services and make a difference to the lives of even more local people.

“Last year was a difficult time for all of us and as we begin to ease out of lockdown, we know that many people will still be struggling with their mental health, experiencing problems such as anxiety, stress and depression. Throughout the pandemic, our staff and volunteers have continued to provide all of our services, mostly remotely, to maintain mental health support for our community.

“In 2020, across our services provided direct support to 5,900 individuals. Demand across our region remains high, so this donation truly does mean a great deal to us. It is fantastic that Barratt and David Wilson Homes are committed to creating a positive legacy by supporting charities and good causes throughout the UK.”

Adrian Jarman, Operations Director at Barratt and David Wilson Homes Cambridgeshire, said: “As a leading housebuilder we strive to support the communities in and around the areas in which we build and were delighted to be able to offer CPSL Mind a donation to support the fantastic work it does.”
