Why Support Us

What’s the Problem?

One in four (some say one in three) of us will struggle with mental health issues at some point in our lives…it’s misunderstood, debilitating and very isolating.

Good work and the right help make all the difference in getting back on track and that’s what we’re about. We need your support to continue to be able to help the people in and around Swindon with short or long-term mental problems to regain the motivation and self-confidence to lead happier and more rewarding lives.

How does Phoenix help?

We understand and we help people who find themselves in this place. We will listen and offer impartial information, advice and guidance about next steps… We know ‘one size does not fit all’. Our support for suffering individuals clearly has benefits to their friends and family as well as wider society.

How you can help

We are always very grateful for any help you can offer, whether it is:

  • your money, as a sympathetic donor or sponsor
  • your time and expertise, as an enthusiastic volunteer
  • your business, as a valued customer

Volunteering for work

We need volunteers to help with our hand-assembly operations as part of our Social Enterprise. Please give us a call if you are interested.

Volunteering for support

We are a charity that helps people recovering from mental health issues such as depression, PTSD and social anxiety, those with life time mental health such as autism and aspergers, those with learning difficulties and people struggling to find employment because of lack of skills. All the people that come to our centre are disadvantaged and come from very poor financial backgrounds. Some have suffered abuse at some point in their lives, have experienced bullying due to their learning disabilities or even the way they look. What is positive is that these are some of the hardest working individuals you will ever come across. They are all wanting to work, they want to feel included in society and contribute.

Can you can offer a Service User a Supported Work Placement, giving them the vital work experience they need?

Can you volunteer to mentor a Service User or help them with CV writing and job searching?

Do you have a skill that you could share with our Service Users and run a small workshop?

We are always looking for volunteers. If you can help then please contact us!
