Whilst mental health has become a ‘hot-topic’ over the last few years, Oakleaf have been working tirelessly to support some of the most vulnerable adults in the Surrey community since 1997. Their beneficiaries are adults aged 16-67 suffering from any mental illness, including schizophrenia, depression, bi-polar disorder and anxiety. They address multiple problems of social isolation, unemployment, poverty and discrimination that their clients face. They help clients to overcome huge barriers and work with them to rebuild their future - by actively training, engaging and supporting them to gain practical skills and the confidence needed to return to the workplace.
In 2019, Oakleaf supported over 720 individuals in the Surrey community, helping 75 people back into employment. Their support made 84% of clients feel more confident and 91% of clients feel less isolated.
