COMMUNITY PROJECTS

 

IMPROVING ACCESS TO THERAPY

Our Community Projects are designed to increase access to the high-quality therapy available at Gravy Banana to more members of our community.

---

The services are free and therefore there is a waiting list. If you are eligible you will receive up to 8 free sessions of therapy. These projects are for people whose circumstances mean that they are highly vulnerable to having a mental health illness or mental health crisis. These services are for people who have little or no income and feel they desperately need help to get better.

---

To read more about vulnerability and risk please visit the section on risk-factors in this website.

---

Please contact us to find out if you or someone you know is eligible. If you work with vulnerable people, please get in contact to see if your client is eligible. 

---

We personally donate 10% of our profits each month to this fund. 

Also, a small number of therapy slots each week are saved for project clients and delivered by the therapist voluntarily.

ONLINE FUNDRAISING COMING SOON:

Personal and Corporate donations to our Community Projects fund will increase the amount of people accessing therapy who cannot afford it but desperately need it. Your donations are incredibly appreciated and you will be able to donate online soon. In the meantime, if you would like to donate now, please get in touch.

THANK YOU

We currently have 3 main projects for which we are developing our community links, see below.

T3 - TURN THE TABLES
PROJECT

A project aimed at empowering people involved in crime who want to turn their lives around.

Maybe you (or someone you know) is in and out of prison often? Or maybe it seems you are continuously on licence with a probation officer but desperately want to turn your life around?

If you have a criminal record but want help to get your life on track, but cannot afford private therapy, please get in contact, we can help you.

HIDDEN GEMS
PROJECT

A project aimed at improving confidence for children who have been expelled from their school or who cannot attend mainstream school.

Maybe you (or someone you know) are always in trouble it seems? Maybe you have been told your behaviour cannot be managed in mainstream school but you desperately want to feel happier.

If you or someone you know has been expelled from school or is struggling in school due to their mental health, please get in contact, we can help.

FORGET ME NOT
PROJECT

A project aimed at reducing stress for people with dementia and their carers.

Maybe the worry about your future is stopping you enjoying life right now? Maybe you are a carer and feel overwhelmed? You want to remember who you are and feel you can cope with life.
