In Despair? We Can Help
The Kelly Foundation offers practical support for adults in the Swindon area who are experiencing mental health issues. We are a growing charity and we offer well-being support, general advocacy, counselling, life coaching and signposting. We aim to be the first port of call for those struggling with their mental health or needing assistance with getting assessed. We will listen and observe to gain a good understanding of each individual's mental health issues in order to provide a bespoke support programme.
We aim to offer you a 'one-stop support package', which is not time-limited. In working with us you will not be forced to go to multiple agencies for different services, see different individuals when accessing services or wait on a lengthy waiting list for appointments. You will be able to access a dedicated support worker, a life coach, counsellor and volunteer support. You will see the same team, who will regularly deliver support as frequently as is required. Each service user will have a bespoke package.
We receive Service Users in 3 ways, by: self-referral, referral by family or friends or agency referral. We work with Social Workers, community health professionals and local GPs to ensure awareness and availability of our services.
Let us Help
If you are experiencing mental health issues then we are here to help, even if you've not been formally diagnosed.
Our friendly team of support staff will meet you for a chat to discuss your situation. We will ask you to complete a little bit of paperwork and then we take it from there and build a bespoke support plan to suit your needs.
We understand how draining it can be supporting a loved one (or a friend) through mental health crises or substance or alcohol abuse.
We are here, not only for the service user but also for family (and friends).
We also receive referrals from other agencies including GP surgeries, charitable bodies and statutory organisations. We work closely with such bodies to ensure resources are properly utilised.
