WILTSHIRE Mind has re-opened its doors to its drop-in centre a year after it was forced to close.
The mental health charity based in Melksham was forced to close its drop-in service after it lost a council contract which left them on the brink of bankruptcy.
However, fundraising efforts throughout the community has allowed the valuable session to become available again. It will run every Wednesday between 1.00pm-4.00pm at The Parish Of St Anthony of Padua, 22 West End and provides a friendly, safe place where people can find support, friendship and have someone to listen to them.
Chief executive officer for Wiltshire Mind, David McKeigue said, “This is a key success for both Wiltshire Mind and myself in the turnaround of the charity. It is so fantastic to have not only local Melksham demand for our services but also local financial support as well. “This is the first step of many in terms of Wiltshire Mind extending its current services (group social support and counselling) across Wiltshire. Wiltshire Mind are based in Melksham and so it is really great to be providing our valuable services to the very community we are also based in.”
