Guinness Partnership helps fund mental health charity

The Guinness Partnership, one of England’s largest housing associations, is pleased to announce they are supporting the charity Off The Record.

Off The Record is an emotional health and wellbeing charity which offers mental health support for young people and their families living in the Southeast Hampshire area. They support some of the most anxious and troubled young people, some of whom experience difficult family situations and have low aspirations for their future. When young people go home there can be a lack of understanding and communication which can hamper progress, this is why Off The Record works with families as a whole.

Guinness is providing funding to Off The Record towards their costs in running a further year of counselling services, benefitting both Guinness residents and the wider community.

Brian Hamlin, Senior Community Partnership Manager at The Guinness Partnership said: “We are extremely pleased to help fund Off The Record, to support their work around young people’s mental health. This is a valuable service which enables those who require help and support, to get it when needed.”

Katharine Gregory, Head of Fundraising, at Off The Record said: “We’re so grateful to The Guinness Partnership for their support of our work at Off The Record. It’s through valuable partnerships like this that, as a charity, we can continue to offer our vital services free of charge to the local community. We have recently extended our counselling offer, to support whole family units, and this wouldn’t have been possible without The Guinness Partnership championing our cause. With newly trained family counsellors, we can strengthen the support network around local young people, creating a more holistic approach, to help fulfil their potential for a brighter future.”

The charity supplies the only free at point of access mental health service beyond the NHS, offering mental health support in schools, mental health work with ethnic minority people, a young carers service offering support to young people under 26 who are caring for a parent or sibling, and a specialist counselling service for young refugees.
