London can be a lonely city for all of us, and people with learning disabilities and mental health support needs are statistically even more likely to find themselves socially isolated.
Traditional support often fails to address the wider social factors that contribute to someone’s isolation. Our Community Connectors in London support people to build their own social networks and lasting friendships.
With their support, people build in confidence, become more independent and start to break down any barriers they may face when trying to make a supported and valued contribution within their community.
We’re doing everything we can to Keep London Connected
After 25 years of supporting people with mental health support needs and learning disabilities, Certitude are launching their first ever fundraising campaign to fight social isolation. To donate to our campaign please go to the JustGiving website.
We believe that going out, being active and interacting with your community has a tremendous impact upon your mental and physical wellbeing. Throughout our campaign, we’ll be sharing stories from some people we know who have done just this at Certitude.
You will also hear from our valiant volunteers, fearless fundraisers and spirited staff, who are taking on a variety of daring challenges to raise money for Certitude.
Fundraise for us
You can raise your own funds for our social isolation campaign by setting up a JustGiving page and clicking on the “Fundraise for Campaign” button. Or, if you prefer, you can donate £5 by texting CERT01 £5 to 70070.
