Working with Sir Norman Lamb to support people's mental wellbeing in Norfolk
Norfolk Community Foundation is delighted to be working with Sir Norman to launch the Norman Lamb Mental Health and Wellbeing Fund, which aims to ensure equality, justice and human rights in our society for those with mental health issues, people on the autism spectrum and those with learning disabilities.
It is estimated that 1 in 4 people in the UK will experience a mental health issue each year. However, many people currently find that they are unable to get the help they need as health services come under critical pressure.
Sir Norman is one of the UK’s most tireless campaigners in the area of mental wellbeing and, with the launch of the Fund, aims to ensure equality, justice and human rights in our society for those with mental ill health, people on the autism spectrum and those with learning disabilities.
Through the funds raised, Norfolk Community Foundation will work to support the organisations at the frontline of mental wellbeing support across Norfolk. We have unparalleled access to the groups that provide support in their communities and therefore are best placed to target support where it is most needed. Many other issues in local communities have their roots in mental health issues, such as our work supporting vulnerable families and communities. Through this vital new fund, we will work with Sir Norman to transform the support that people receive, improving local lives and communities.
