Why I Started The Priest Foundation
In 2014 I entered a cycling event called the Tour of Dengie with five friends. We trained really hard through the winter months. The weather on the day of the event was horrendous with 35 mph winds and pouring rain. Everything told us not to ride in those conditions, but as we had trained so hard it wasn’t going to put us off.
We Believe In The Value Of Conversations About Mental Health
One of the ways we are doing this is through our grant programme, which allows approved applicants to receive counselling paid for via our foundation. We believe in the value of conversations about mental health and trauma and want to pave the way for recovery.
The mission of the Priest Foundation is to improve the lives of people with mental health issues and make counselling more assessible for everyone in the Rochford District and Southend area.
