On Red Nose Day 2017, we’re thrilled to announce that Comic Relief have awarded APP a grant of £120,000 to part-fund our peer support service from 1 March for 30 months.

This will fund paid time for our Peer Support Coordinators and workshops to train new Peer Support Volunteers.

We are delighted with this news but it’s only one part of the funding jigsaw. We are working on a new application to the Big Lottery, alongside other Trusts & Foundations. Our new health professional training, with lived experience speakers, will help raise extra cash and we have events planned throughout the year starting with Music 4 Mums around World Maternal Mental Health day.

Your support continues to be vital, allowing us to help women & families, whilst we secure further funding. It has been a powerful way to demonstrate to funders the need for our charity and the commitment of our supporters.

Thank you and a big THANK YOU to Comic Relief. Please enjoy Red Nose Day and don’t forget to donate!
