Swindon has now been granted Time to Change status as local providers have come together to raise awareness collectively across the town. The steering group is led by 8 providers; Age UK, Swindon Step, AWP, Public Health Swindon, IPSUM, Swindon and Gloucestershire Mind, Phoenix Enterprises and the Olive Tree Café. We are here as a group to support the local Champions to be the voice of the hub and make a real difference in our local community.
We will run at least 4 campaigns together a year, this includes; Suicide Prevention Day, World Mental Health Day, Time to Talk Day and Mental Health Awareness Week. We see Champions at the forefront of these campaigns and are always looking to grow our network of Champions so you can help direct our approach.
The best way to get involved in the Hub is to sign up as a Community Champion so you can receive updates on everything we are doing. You can also like our Facebook Page to keep up to date on our progress. Maybe you would like to become an Employee Champion and register your organisation to adopt the Time to Change pledge? The hub will be able to help guide this. We would love to see you join our social movement in Swindon.
