‘Friends of CHUMS’ (FOC) is looking for engaging, dynamic people to become trustees of the charity. The charity’s purpose is to raise funds and awareness to support CHUMS CIC who deliver Mental Health and Emotional Wellbeing Services for Children and Young People.
CHUMS CIC currently deliver nine services supporting children and young people’s mental health as well as their families. Services include bereavement, trauma and tier 2 mild to moderate mental health support. Within these wider services we offer specific support to young carers and young people with disabilities.
Our Stillbirth and Neonatal bereavement Service and Crisis Response Services support people of all age groups.
Additionally, we offer a Recreational Therapeutic Service, which uses football and music as tools of engagement for those young people who find it hard to access traditional talking therapies.
Many of these services are delivered with funds raised by FOC through grant applications and community events.
CHUMS CIC is a creative, innovative, developing service and has a growth strategy in place. We are actively seeking a number of new trustees to join FOC who share our passion to make a difference to all children and young people referred. If you have the interest and can become a committed member of the team then we would like to hear from you. The charity meet bi-monthly in the evening. There will be other opportunities to support FOC by becoming involved in community events and spreading awareness of the service.
