On 21st April 2021 we successfully raised £305 with 17 supporters in 28 days, getting us part of the way to our £2,000 overall target. Via our next fundraising activity, we hope to raise another £500 towards this target.
Well Grounded is a social enterprise, changing lives through coffee. We link people facing barriers to work into fulfilling careers in speciality coffee.
Well Grounded provides free technical training and accreditation, employability, social and emotional wellbeing support, alongside a mentorship and coaching programme. We have transitioned 215 into work, training and education in 4 years.
Since the Covid-19 outbreak, we have seen a 400% increase in demand for our mental health and wellbeing services. We continue to work with vulnerable people in need during this time, providing food, employment and wellbeing support.
The impact of the pandemic and unemployment is wide reaching with mental health and young people hit particularly hard.
With the support of the HR team at UBS, Well Grounded will work tirelessly to link those most impacted by the pandemic to the quickly emerging jobs in industry we love. Our wrap-around mental health and financial management support ensures our Graduates are supported to thrive in work and life.
