The Victoria Centre Swindon is an acute mental health unit for older people. The Victoria Centre cares for people with both functional and organic mental health conditions.
The aim of this crowdfunder is to raise funds that will go towards purchasing items that can be used by staff and patients. Items such as hand cream, lip balm, cold drinks or snacks for staff who are working in extremely challenging conditions each and every shift. Items such as books, puzzles, games or craft materials for the patients to support them in their time of ill-health and social isolation. If we raise enough for a communication device such as an ipad to help keep patients in touch with their loved ones, that would be above and beyond!!!
Ideally the money will be spent, where possible, on items produced and sold by local and small business, giving back to independent enterprises who are also struggling at this time.
