We deliver vital mental health services to children in schools across the UK


After 35 years working in the NHS, in mental health services, Andrew is taking a break to pickup a new mission.  He is sailing round the UK, solo unsupported and undeterred in a 13ft Laser dinghy.  He is the ‘Shrink in the Drink’.

Sailing round the UK will be a huge challenge with many hurdles and risks.  Having been given the gift of time to undertake this journey, he wants to make further contibutions to the mental health future of young people, by raising money for place2be.  Hopefully you too will be able to give your time and generosity to help make a difference to the most vulnerable of  the next generation.
