The Cellar Trust COVID-19 appeal
The COVID-19 pandemic has caused changes to services across the world, including at The Cellar Trust. We transitioned to working digitally from home at the start of lockdown so we could continue providing our vital services, contacting our clients regularly to offer help and support. However, the pandemic has meant our already busy crisis service is more in demand than ever, so we need to raise £50k to be able to hire two extra Peer Support Workers to join our Haven team…
The COVID-19 pandemic has also brought an increase in demand for our services. Our Haven Crisis Support service had its highest ever number of support sessions in April as lockdown was announced in the UK. Our courses during Mental Health Awareness Week, facilitated by our Pathways to Employment team, were extremely popular and our online peer support groups are ensuring that are clients are getting the care they need.
However, as seen across the UK charity sector, our community fundraising has taken a huge hit due to social distancing and lockdown restriction. We face a funding gap of £50,000 between April and December 2020. Without this, the amount of support we can give and the number of people we can help will be limited and so we need your support to fill this funding gap.
If you can, please donate to our COVID-19 Appeal and help us raise the much-needed funds for The Cellar Trust.
