If you would like to apply for a grant from the C&I Charity - please get in touch!
We have re-launched the C&I Charity to assist and support the mental health, wellbeing and recovery of Trust service users within the wider local communities of Camden, Islington and Kingston by providing additional support and resources not normally available through health and social care funding.
We are now accepting applications for grants from the charity, so please do get in touch if you would like help with funding a project that meets that criteria. Is there something you would like to provide in your area – for example sports equipment for your service users?
If you would like any additional support or guidance please contact the Chair of the Charity Working Group (CWG) RogerJohn.Evans@candi.nhs.uk or on 07786 334474.
C&I has moved the service we normally offer in emergency departments to our 24-hour Mental Health Crisis Assessment Service, at St Pancras Hospital. The service will see people in need of urgent care so that they do not have to go to a hospital emergency department unless they have an urgent medical need. Emergency departments are under unprecedented pressure due to COVID-19 – the illness caused by coronavirus. We are urging people in mental health crisis to telephone our 24/7 crisis line on 0800 917 3333 or contact their usual community mental health team. If service users attend the 24-hour Mental Health Crisis Assessment Service in person we will see you but we urge you to contact the crisis line in advance for advice to ensure you are only leaving home when absolutely necessary.
