Mental Health

Camphill Foundation UK

Camphill Foundation provides much-needed financial support to projects which greatly enhance the quality of life of adults, children and young people with learning disabilities. Camphill communities throughout the UK and Ireland offer safe and supportive environments in a variety of semi-rural and urban settings where individuals can feel at home and develop their personal abilities and interests. There is also a strong sense of belonging to a diverse but cohesive intentional community and supported living network. Work opportunities abound, giving a real sense of meaning, purpose and achievement, which is essential for a person’s well-being.

Camphill Foundation supports development projects such as the building of new accommodation, establishing new workshops and facilities, developing agricultural and horticultural activities, providing new equipment, and various educational, training, cultural and social initiatives. Support is often in the form of grants to help projects get started and loans at a low rate of interest, usually over several years.

Supporting Camphill Foundation means also fostering a new understanding and recognition of people with disabilities and enabling them to develop and make use of their astonishing talents and skills as fully engaged, talented and co-responsible members of the community carrying out important and meaningful work which is both fulfilling for them and of great value to others.

Psychiatry Research Trust

The Psychiatry Research Trust (PRT) was set up by a Trust Deed dated 20th January 1982. It raises funds for research into all aspects of mental illness and brain disorder undertaken at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience and its associated Bethlem Royal and Maudsley Hospitals, and has a special interest in developing the researchers of tomorrow.

Throughout our existence we have received (and are eternally grateful for) a huge amount of help from volunteers who have raised money by running, dancing, swimming, cycling, and skateboarding for us; organising quizzes, raffles, coffee mornings, plant sales, book sales, and cake sales for us; performed plays, presented concerts, and sung Carols for us; remembered us on their birthdays and in their wills. They have been responsible for donations amounting to hundreds of thousands of pounds

If we are to continue to help the vast number of sufferers from mental ill health and brain disorders in this country, such generous people as they have been will always be essential to us in order that we may maintain the quality and relevance of the research work we support.

Only in this way will we be able to ensure that the tools of our research retain their cutting edge. These tools are essentially the people, the space for them to work in (clinics, wards and laboratories), the scientific and medical equipment they need to work with, and the library to provide them with the information they require. It is for these reasons that the Psychiatry Research Trust seeks your help.
