As it’s World Mental Health Day today we would like to recognise the work that is being done locally by charities and community groups that we fund and support in order to help residents improve their wellbeing and feel more included in our local community.

Since 2015 Devonshire West Big Local has funded a diverse range of local projects that have included both physical and mental wellbeing. Some of these activities include healthy eating events, play clubs, training and employment support and so much more.

One of our recently funded projects at the YMCA provides a safet space for young people to learn how to screen-print in addition to giving them an opportunity to talk about anything that they may be worried about and you can read more about that project here.

So a BIG thank you for all of our local groups that have helped in so many ways. It’s a privilege to be a part of it and to see the impact that it makes in the people around us.

Happy World Mental Health Day whatever you’re doing today!
