About Friends of Fulbourn Hospital and the Community
The Friends of Fulbourn Hospital and the Community (FoFHC) is a charity which was established in 1952, and exists to support the care, welfare and recovery of sufferers from mental illness. A further aim is to increase the understanding of mental illness, and the needs and problems of patients, and their carers.
Our work can be summarised under three heads:
• Support for the wards at Fulbourn Hospital, such as last year’s substantial grant to Springbank Ward to create a sensory garden.
• Support for individuals, in particular meeting those who are living in the community, by making grants for things such as essential household goods, or to enable them to pursue an activity which helps them on the path to recovery. These applications are normally made by a member of the CPT community care team.
• Supporting and sponsoring fellowship activities, such as a pottery group for those suffering from dementia, and projects such as the Forum Lunch Club and Living Room
We are now working ever more closely with the Louisa Bullivant, the Voluntary Services Manager, and with Hannah Wysocki, the Charity Manager – Head to Toe to ensure that our activities are complementary in our support for CPFT volunteers and those with mental health problems whom they and we exist to benefit.
