Closure of South Lakeland Mind

It is with great regret that we have to announce the closure of South Lakeland Mind at the end of March as the charity is no longer financially viable. The challenging economic climate coupled with a lack of sufficient funding beyond this date means that we can no longer continue to operate.

We understand that this is an incredibly difficult time for everyone affected, particularly our members of staff, volunteers and service users, who are at the heart of everything we do. We extend our sincere thanks to all those who have worked hard to deliver the first class services we have provided and to the many who have raised funds and to help sustain our work.

We are working hard to try and make sure that those staff and volunteers affected are supported to find new roles and that our clients aren’t left without the services they need. We are in the process of signposting our drop-in clients to alternative services based in Kendal. Our peer support coordinator is working with each individual in the befriending service to identify appropriate support for them moving forward.

With the support of Mind in Furness, National Mind and Stricklandgate House we have been able to put in place interim arrangements to ensure that the 75 clients currently in the service are supported in the completion of their counselling.

We are hopeful that, with the support of the local community, a way forward can be found to preserve our excellent and much valued counselling service once South Lakeland Mind closes and these interim measures cease.
