We cover the area of South East Northumberland. A population of over 155,000 people. In the last NHS survey in 2021, mental health services involved 54 providers of NHS community mental health services in England. We received responses from 17,322 people, a response rate of 26.5%.
Every month we release some Good news stories that we have written about some of our new and existing members. Some of these stories are brilliant examples of how Contact can help people with Mental Health Problems.
We now have a new cook in the Kitchen who is very popular with our members and is a brilliant cook. Their Sausage casserole was to die for and there were cries for more. On a Friday they make Sausage and Bacon sandwiches which quickly brought in members who might not ordinarily come in on the Friday. Even her Taxi Driver comes in for a bite to eat. She also helped with our Chili and Garlic Bread evening in August which raised over £100.
We have had a Caravan for a lot of Years and recently we were able to renew it and we have let a Charity use it for a Mum and her 2 Children. Mum is Terminally ill, We wanted to make this holiday the best it could be! We were so pleased we were able to be this! Its always nice to help others!
