Fundraise for us

Growing Well has helped hundreds of people recover from mental ill health since we opened in 2004.

Now we’ve opened our second site at Tebay Services, we can help people in rural Eden, North Cumbria and Carlisle too. And in 2024, we will open a third site in Egremont where we can reach even more people in West Cumbria.

We rely on grants, donations and fundraising from the community for the majority our income.

Fundraising from individual challenges, community events, and charity collections to mark birthdays or other anniversaries play an increasingly big part in our income. Here’s what to do if you’d like to raise money to support Growing Well’s vital mental health work.

You can download our Fundraising Guide provides information and advice on how you too can raise funds in support of our work.

If there is anything that isn’t covered in here, please just contact us on 07903 013 648 or by email at fundraising@growingwell.co.uk
