Weʼve raised £1,527 to launch the new HOPE Charity Project - bridging the gap between the NHS and support organisations for children in mental health crisis.
- Horsham, United Kingdom
- Funded on Tuesday, 21st November 2017
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
The current mental health system is failing to adequately help and support young people and their families that are in desperate need of somewhere neutral to go, where they just want an understanding ear to listen.
The Hope Charity Project has been set up to help families in Sussex who are struggling to support their children suffering with mental health issues. We offer a holistic approach to providing advice, support and comfort to the children, parents and siblings who are all effected by this growing problem.
Not only do we provide a reassuring environment for the young person in crisis, we also understand the importance of support for the family, and have designed our services for all.
Our aim is not only to unite our own local community, but to bring together other groups in communities throughout the UK, building our network of families helping each other at these times when there is nowhere else to turn. If you would like a lifeline, register with us here.
All the people involved in the Hope Charity Project have been touched by this terrifying and emotionally challenging issue. Having gone through extensive experiences and being on the receiving end of a currently failing system in crisis, we have taken it upon ourselves to fill a massive gap for children between the ages of 10-16 and their families who are suffering unnecessarily.
Having gone through so many of the challenges ourselves, which affected all our families, carers and schools, we have a unique level of empathy and experience that could make the biggest difference in a time where everything seems bleak.
All funds raised will go to getting this project off the ground - we need this up and running as soon as we can!
