Project delighted to receive support from Lloyds Bank Foundation Grant
March 3, 2017
The One to One Project will support more people experiencing mental health difficulties thanks to a £35,834 two year grant from Lloyds Bank Foundation. The grant will contribute towards the organisation’s day-to-day running costs, enabling the One to One Project to continue to providing counselling and mentoring support to vulnerable adults living with mental health issues.
Hannah Cooper, Project Manager at One to One Project, said: “We are delighted to have been successful in securing a Lloyds Bank Foundation Invest grant. It will enable the One to One Project to continue to use a confidential and safe premises in King’s Lynn, which is so vital for the support of vulnerable adults living with challenging mental health difficulties. The Project offers three main services: counselling, mentoring and group work, all free of charge and therefore available to all, regardless of ability to pay. Our long-term support promotes positive and lasting change in people’s lives, enabling them to live independently and free from health care services.”
Paul Streets OBE, Chief Executive of Lloyds Bank Foundation for England and Wales, said: “Cuts to public funding and changes to commissioning mean specialist local charities are struggling to stay afloat despite increasing demand for their services. Funding from grant makers such as Lloyds Bank Foundation can be a lifeline for many such small charities. We are pleased to get this new year off to a great start by supporting One to One Project, whose work in the community is invaluable. We will be working even more closely with all the charities we support in 2017 to make sure their voices are heard.”
