Oakleaf has been helping the Surrey community manage its mental ill-health since 1997. The charity’s aim is to transform the lives and futures of adults who are struggling with their mental health, and help them secure the skills, confidence and training needed to return to the workplace and live full, meaningful lives. This is delivered via three main focuses: work-related training, wellbeing activities & courses, and counselling services. Oakleaf also aims to promote awareness around mental health issues and reduce the stigma of mental illness.
"We are running this event to raise much-needed funds for Oakleaf – as well as raise awareness around mental health in the Surrey community, and promote the profiles of local singers and musicians. We hope this event will bring people together during these uncertain lockdown times, when we need community the most. Plus, research shows that music can have a positive impact on one’s mental health!
The event will be free to ‘attend’, but we kindly ask for donations to our Coronavirus Emergency Appeal if you enjoy the music and activities. All funds raised will go towards our work supporting those with mental-ill health in Surrey."
