Our vision and impact
Our vision is for equality, rights, the fair treatment and maximum quality of life for all those affected by mental illness, their carers, family and friends. As one of the largest charitable providers of services for people living with mental illness, we are well placed to make a direct impact on the care people receive.
But we have a much larger vision too – to transform at every level the way our nation approaches mental illness. Every year, our diverse range of information and support helps tens of thousands of people get through crises, live independently and feel that they do not have to face mental illness alone.
In 2022/23 we supported thousands of people
In care homes, local communities and secure settings, we helped over 6,665 people with a different range of needs.
We provided 6,913 people with support and help to return to their own community
Criminal and secure services
We supported 5,537 people living with mental illness before, during and after they spent time in prison.
We provided 575 people with a therapeutic and recovery-focused home environment and support to help them live independently.
Help us change lives
Because of our incredible supporters, who fundraise on our behalf and give generous gifts, we can support tens of thousands of people every year. Thank you to everyone who makes our vital work possible.
