Time and Space support group
We are the only hearing voices service in Glasgow and we are the only self-harm support service offering weekend groups in Glasgow.
Any donations we receive will enable us to continue to provide the best possible service for our members.
We currently hold 4 weekly groups, one of which takes place during the weekend, one monthly group for carers and a fortnightly outreach group in a supported accommodation service.
We will also be able to pay our volunteers travel expenses, supervision and training costs supporting them as they give up their time.
We will also use a portion of the donated funds towards promoting the service, to purchase leaflets and promotional materials that we can take to events.
We hope to build a sustainable service that works the best it can for those who use it.
Hi, my name is Francesca. Life experiences and work constantly make me think of how precious our mental health is. At time of personal struggles, I received support by the people around me who continuously offered help and care. The community I was surrounded by was invaluable for my recovery and shaped the type of persone and professional I am today both as support worker and counsellor. This fundraising is dedicated to them.
In anticipation to the Mental Health Awareness Week, which will be from Monday 13thto Sunday 19thof May, I decided to raise funds for a very dear charity that I volunteer for: Time and Space. Being outdoors has always been my go-to way to cope with periods of poor mental health, and so, what a better way to raise funds for Time and Space than this.
I will hike in the Outer Hebrides, a 156-mile long way from Vatersay to the Butt of Lewis and I will camp when weather permitting. Although I am not new to camping and hiking long distances, this is the first time I combine two of my passions and I am excited to embark in this little adventure.
My goal is to reach £200 but anything raised will be highly appreciated by myself and by the charity.
All the best
