Vital for Berkshire
What are the ‘needs’ in Berkshire?
Are we funding the right projects in the right places?


Vital for Berkshire goes beyond the statistics to uncover areas and themes where pockets of deprivation can be found, and where local communities are struggling. A safe home, good health and secure employment are interdependent and underpin wellbeing – a key message from Berkshire’s Vital Signs 2017. Vital for Berkshire will raise awareness about and raise vital funds to address these issues.


People with mental health issues are more likely than average to experience homelessness, rent or mortgage difficulties, poor quality housing, deprived neighbourhoods or crime and isolation (Vital Signs 2017)
