Vee's Place

Funding Success: Vee’s Place

We’re pleased to have supported the Vee’s Place, a community centre in Knowsley, Merseyside who have just secured a £8,550 grant from Awards for All at the National Lottery Community Fund.

Founder Verity Rhodes created Vee’s Place after experiencing periods of poor mental health and realised her lived experience could help others. Determined to give back she brought together five other people with similar experiences to develop a framework of support for those struggling to access mental health provision.

The funding will enable Vee’s Place to offer a suite of targeted online sessions to around 400 people from LGBT and isolated BAME communities; sessions will include counselling, mentoring and leadership programmes tailored specifically to support our beneficiaries.
