As an invaluable contributor to the work we do and to show our thanks, we would like to invite you to participate in our Annual General Meeting on 26th November 2020.
However, this year MindWise’s AGM will be held virtually due to COVID restrictions and our ongoing commitment to keeping us all safe and well during these unprecedented times. I hope you can join us!
Over the year past we have continued on our journey which aims to support those at risk of or experiencing mental health needs, their families and carers, in Northern Ireland and beyond.
We achieved many things, including:
Extending our client reach from 10,000 to over 11,000 people per annum, through the development of new services and the expansion of existing ones.
Improving our finances by securing new contracts which has enabled us to reach more people.
Strengthening our partnerships with statutory, voluntary and community organisations across NI and the UK.
In addition, we successfully managed the COVID challenges which hit all of us in March. I am however delighted to advise that to date we have remained free from COVID outbreaks and continue to ‘stay calm, stay connected and stay the course together’.
During our AGM celebrations this year we will take you on a journey, from where we started in 2019 to where we are now, whilst also providing a flavour of where we want to go in the future – your views on this, as always, will be fully appreciated.
Chair of MindWise Board of Trustees
