Friends of Rekindle

 

 

Incorporating the Small Steps Project 

Calling for FRIENDS OF REKINDLE

 

Rekindle Small Steps is a small and very focused mental health charity based in Market Street Newtown. We help young people aged 16-25 to recover from debilitating mental illness and go on to lead full and successful lives. Rekindle Small Steps remained safely open throughout the pandemic, seeing young people outside when inside contact was not possible.

We are launching a new Friends of Rekindle group to support our dedicated staff, Diane Kemal and Dawn together with clients and volunteersAnyone can become a Friend ;  individuals, organisations, relatives and recovered clients. We are seeking to enlarge our presence in the local community, to form links and make new contacts and find new ways of supporting the project. The Friends could help in so many ways; by holding local fundraising events, becoming volunteers and helping to supply essentials for young people who have very little.

We receive no statutory funding for our core service, being totally dependent on grant giving charities and trusts and on our own fundraising efforts.

If you think you can help us by becoming a Friend please let us know.

We envisage that the Friends of Rekindle would become a self-sustaining group with a Chair person, Secretary and Treasurer and their own bank account.  This would be a good start!
