Headstrong Wellbeing has been awarded a grant for £2,125 from the Precision FM Foundation to help support people with mental health issues in Leicester and Leicestershire.
The grant will provide a much needed life-line to the Leicester based community interest company, which operates a ‘pay what you can afford’ counselling service.
With a sharp deterioration in mental health during Leicester’s extended lockdown, Headstrong Wellbeing has seen a major increase in referrals to its services, with decrease in payments.
The generous funding from the Precision FM Foundation is helping to cover staffing costs, clinical supervision and PPE requirements needed for a safe opening and will enable therapists to extend their work with the most vulnerable people in our communities.
At the start of the pandemic, Headstrong Wellbeing swiftly adapted its service to continue to support people online however they are now beginning a face to face service again.
