The Charity Times Awards 2019

We’re still on cloud 9 here at The Cellar Trust because this month we took home gold in the Cross-sector Partnership of the Year Award at the Charity Times Awards 2019!

The Awards celebrate the achievements and contributions of charities across the country, and we’re delighted to have been chosen as the winners in our category. We are thrilled that a local charity like ours has received this recognition and we are so grateful to Bradford District Care NHS Foundation Trust, Bradford Metropolitan District Council, and MyWellbeing College for their support.

Brent Kilmurray, Chief Executive at Bradford District Care NHS Foundation Trust said: “The Cellar Trust is a highly respected, well engaged community organisation providing support for people in mental health crisis in Bradford and beyond. The Charity has been a fantastic partner to the Trust, working creatively with us to support development of pathways reaching into communities, involving people with lived experience and working with us to create innovative cross-sector partnerships. The Cellar Trust has people at the heart of everything it does, with a team of fantastic peer support workers heading up service delivery, all of whom have lived experience.”

Councillor Susan Hinchcliffe, Leader of Bradford Council, said: “Tackling mental health issues to enable people to live a more positive life is an important priority for us and this is a well-deserved award for The Cellar Trust as a key partner in delivering these services. Mental health problems can affect anyone at any time and they can be devastating to that individual, their friends and family. The Cellar Trust’s work is not just to help those in crisis. It also works with the council and other health partners to supporting people with mental health issue back into work, enabling them to live a happier and healthier life, benefiting everyone in the district.”
