One Donation, Twice the Impact!
We are excited to announce the launch of our Stepping Stones Appeal, in collaboration with Hampshire Cultural Trust, through The Big Give Kind2Mind Challenge, raising funds to deliver an innovative art lead project to support the mental health of young people in Hampshire.
The Big Give Kind2Mind Challenge runs from midday on the 15th May – midday on 22nd May 2023. During this time, all donations received via the Big Give (up to £5,000) will be doubled by match-funding.
Record numbers of children and young people are being referred to mental health services revealing an unprecedented crisis. Services are stretched far beyond their limits and the waiting list for Children and Adolescent Mental Health Services is generally over three years. As well as significant concerns over the mental health of these individuals who are waiting for support or unable to access support at all, there is a wider impact on their social development, engagement with learning and, therefore, future prospects.
The Murray Parish Trust are working with Hampshire Cultural Trust to deliver a local, targeted response in Hampshire. They will deliver innovative support for sixty vulnerable children and young people (aged 11-17) through non-clinical, arts and creativity based intervention. The artists are not only highly accomplished, but are also experienced in working with young people with complex needs or those who have experienced trauma. They will lead tailored sessions for each young person and create a calm and a trusting environment which inspires and empowers them to reach their potential.
How can you help?
There are many ways in which you can help The Murray Parish Trust and support The Big Kind2Mind Challenge.
Even a small donation can make all the difference. So your £10 donation becomes a £20 donation, your £50 donation becomes a £100 donation towards our Stepping Stones Appeal!
Donations must be received via The Big Give Kind2Mind Challenge website between midday on Monday 15th May and midday on Monday 22nd May.
