Bridging the Gap - Mind Matters

East Cheshire Chamber of Commerce Charity of the Year 2024/25


Bridging the Gap, Mind Matters is a registered charity, providing practical support for individuals who are experiencing hardship. Their mission is to bridge the gap faced by those trying to access mental health services but not considered urgent enough for immediate care. This is the solution we are missing that will alter people’s experiences and perceptions of mental health. Let’s not wait until it is a crisis situation, let’s support those who need it and prevent worse-case scenarios.
