About Us

Serving Luton & Bedford

We are a registered charity focused on promoting mental health in the faith communities of Luton and Bedford. 

Our team consists of individuals who have either professional or personal experience in the field of mental health. 

We understand the challenges that community leaders, health service providers, employers, commissioners and stakeholders are facing when reaching out to the diverse population of Luton and Bedford.

We have developed a targeted approach to help tackle health inequalities and promote mental health and well-being. 

​We have been actively involved in raising the profile of mental health in partnership with statutory and non-statutory organisations along with faith groups and other relevant charities.

How we work?

We provide outreach, education advice to groups and individuals in how to seek support by acknowledging their faith and background. 

Our focus is to tackle the stigma and issues around mental health amongst faith communities in Luton and Bedford. We offer mental health training to groups,  organisations and conduct workshops which highlight the importance of the Five Ways to Wellbeing in order to educate, empower and engage those who may be affected or concerned by their mental health or that of others.

The work we have done so far has been well received at charity events, community gatherings and educational establishment open days. We are open minded to work with organisations who also feel that mental health should be at the forefront of any individual's health concerns
