Transporting people with limited mobility
Our regular CommuniTea coffee morning, hosted by the Southampton Children’s Play Association (SCPA), is a wonderful, friendly group where the participants have lots of fun together.
The session marking Time to Talk Day, was a great chance for them to include the topic of mental health and wellbeing in their chat and welcome visitors for whom this is an important issue to be thinking about.
Barratt’s support meant we could fund a minibus that caters for people with limited mobility, which allowed some of our older, frailer folk to join in with today’s event.
Time to Talk Day
Time to Talk Day is a UK wide campaign, in association with SAMH (Scottish Association for Mental Health) and See Me in Scotland, Inspire and Change Your Mind in Northern Ireland, and Time to Change Wales.
Highlighting mental health
Anthony Dimmick, Barratt Homes Community Liaison Manager, Southampton Division, said: “Time to Talk Day is an important day when it comes to highlighting mental health across the country, and when we heard that Communicare was holding its own event to mark the day, we wanted to show our support.”
