Mind in Berkshire is an exciting collaboration between Buckinghamshire Mind and Oxfordshire Mind in which we will work together to create a unified voice and understanding across East and West Berkshire.
We are dedicated to exploring how we can use our skills and experience to develop solutions where gaps and opportunities are identified. Working alongside existing providers to facilitate the sharing of knowledge and skills and enhancing capacity.
Buckinghamshire Mind is working across East Berkshire, where we already deliver a range of services, whilst Oxfordshire Mind is working across West Berkshire. The local Minds are working together to strengthen partnerships and alliances county-wide, remaining committed always to the principles of the Mind Federation Agreement.
Over the last few years in East Berkshire, Buckinghamshire Mind have impacted on hundreds of lives through our expanding Friends in Need service, our Community Connectors and indirectly through the Support, Time and Recovery (STAR) service, which we subcontract to Berkshire Healthcare Trust. We also deliver a wide selection of Training Services to local organisations along with Children and Young People’s mental health support and educational workshops in schools and colleges for students, staff and parents.
We recognise that there is always more to be done and we look forward to continuing to build our services across East Berkshire in the years to come.
