BCF partnered with Brighter Berkshire, the community led and organised initiative, for the 2017 Year of Mental Health. It has been a busy year for the team who are working across Berkshire to reduce stigma about mental health and are well on the way to raising £200,000 to fund local projects and voluntary organisations supporting those with mental health issues.
We have worked in partnership with BBC Radio Berkshire to help raise awareness.
“This is huge recognition that people value the work we are all doing to help Berkshire be a compassionate community. A massive thank you for making a difference to so many people and I hope this inspires us all to carry on and helping in Berkshire!” Alison Foster
