Objectives

Each year we provide a vital safety net for over 100 vulnerable adults in Swindon with mental health issues and learning disabilities. Their challenges include depression, anxiety, Autism, Asperger’s and Downs Syndrome.

Activities

Phoenix enriches their lives by building their employability skills. We work with each person individually, improving confidence and morale, mental and physical health. We provide all our people with holistic support with day-to-day matters where needed, including, but not limited to, medication, benefits, financial management and housing.

Together we do packaging and hand-assembly jobs for other businesses, who add to their social value by paying us a commercial rate. This income covers around 40% of our costs, the balance coming from fundraising and grants.

Through our structured routine, support, work experience and social activities we help each service user to manage their wellbeing and to reach their potential.
