Ben Phillips, Senior Marketing Manager at Damart, said “We are pleased to be supporting The Cellar Trust which does valuable work and provides an important service for people who live within the local community where most of our colleagues live and work. As a business it is important to us to support local charity initiatives in the area.”

Kim Shutler, Chief Executive Officer at The Cellar Trust, added: “We’re very grateful for the support we’re to receive from Damart. This donation will help us make a real difference to the lives of the people we work with. We have lots of exciting plans for 2019 and support from Damart will be vital in helping us to ensure that people experiencing mental health problems get the help they need and deserve.”

We’ve launched a new Telehealth service in partnership with MyWellbeing College

We’ve partnered up with MyWellbeing College to launch an innovative Telehealth service, offering support to people in the Bradford, Airedale, Wharfedale and Craven Communities.

Our new service offers evening and weekend support at the other end of the telephone, with experienced wellbeing coaches on hand to give guidance and help to those in need. Appointments are being offered by peer support workers based here at the Trust, in joint partnership with MyWellbeing College.

We recognise for those people who may work full time Monday to Friday or would struggle to travel to appointments need a different way of receiving support, which is why telephone appointments will be a great addition to our service. As well as daytime appointments we offer appointments for people on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday evenings, as well as all day Saturday.

We have eight peer support workers in the team, all with different backgrounds, from telephone counsellors to social workers. We are able to offer appointments in both Urdu and Punjabi, as well as English. Our peer support workers all have lived experience, so can relate to how people might be thinking, behaving and feeling.

To access the service you can register online at www.bmywellbeingcollege.nhs.uk or give the enrolment team a call on 0300 555 5551.

Can you give us a helping hand?

We’re doing everything we can to make sure those who need our help are not affected by the damage to our building following the fire on Friday (16 Nov), but we need your help to keep our vital services running.

Services like Haven, which delivers around 50 support sessions a week for people in crisis, have had to be relocated.

It’s a big upheaval and we want to raise £1,000 to make sure we can cover costs, for example, travel costs for those in crisis.

Please give them a helping hand by donating £10, or whatever you can afford.
