Birmingham Care Group
Birmingham Care Group is a registered charity that has been supporting vulnerable adults experiencing mental health since May 2012.
What is Birmingham Care Group?
Birmingham Care Group was established four years ago, and its aim was to provide a day centre and drop in centre for vulnerable adults who were experiencing mental health problems, providing access to various activities in a safe environment to improve their health and well being. The centre helps to integrate its members back into the community and avoid isolation due to the limited mental health services that are available. They also offer a minibus service, making it is easier for people to attend the centre as many of its members live independently with very little support, and rely heavily on the centre, even if only to drop in for a hot drink and meal.
Birmingham Care Group was originally open for 3 days per week, but this has increased to 4 days per week due to popular demand!
If successful, what will you use your LoveBrum funding for?
Birmingham Care Group asked their members directly how they should use the funding as they are at the core of the day centre.
The funds would be used to pay for a hot meal for its members, especially as the winter draws in, as some service users who attend the centre do not eat a proper meal.
It will also allow members to have continued access to health and wellbeing activities by having a fitness instructor deliver much needed exercise. These activities are designed for all age groups including those with limited mobility.
The funding would also allow the minibus service to continue, and supply arts and crafts materials for the group.
The funding would mean that the members will continue to have a safe environment to go, with regular social interaction and no fear of isolation.
