Porchlight – Supporting Mental Health

Porchlight – Supporting Mental Health

Are your feelings or worries affecting your prospects? If you live in Kent or East Sussex and are struggling to cope with everyday life, we can help you:

  • Manage your circumstances & mental health
  • Regain your independence
  • Get into work, volunteering or education.

If you are not working and feel as though you are living with a mental health condition or life is getting on top of you, our free Aspirations service can provide support. We’ll help you regain independence and live a life where mental health or negative feelings don’t stand in your way. Aspirations can help you to rediscover your confidence, find ways to cope with your mental health & wellbeing, feel less isolated / become more social, and get into work, volunteering or education. Whatever your circumstances, we won’t judge you. What we discuss will remain confidential.

Could your organisation be an Aspirations partner? Are you a support service operating in East Sussex? We are looking for an organisation to join the Aspirations network.

Porchlight has been awarded a European Social Fund / Big Lottery Fund (ESF/BLF) Building Better Opportunities (BBO) grant to deliver an innovative service to people who have had mental health issues that have been a barrier to work.

We are looking for a fourth partner to join us to extend our support into East Sussex. Project services will be concentrated in remote coastal and rural areas of Kent and East Sussex where services have historically been hard to access. Services will be personalised to the needs and preferences of participants and ensuring that support will be available in the place and manner that suits them. The Aspirations service runs until at least September 2019. You will be applying for the full contract and the service will not be divided into separate lots.
