The aim of Positive Approach Charity is to offer long-term support and care for people with mental health issues from its base in Blandford Forum in Dorset. It offers one-to-one assistance and a daily support group with various activities and clubs on offer. More than 70 people each week benefit. The Charity helps to improve wellbeing and mental health recovery. It reduces people’s isolation by providing a friendly and accepting setting where people can meet, have a cuppa and a chat, and feel part of a positive community.
The Foundation is contributing £3,000 per annum for two years from October 2016. The grant will go towards the salaries of workers supporting the group.
