Rob George 19th Apr, 2022

ONSIDE, a local charity which provides support across Worcestershire and Herefordshire for vulnerable, disadvantaged or those struggling with life has been chosen by Crowngate Shopping Centre to be its charity of the year.

ONSIDE provides a wide range of services to ensure fairness and equality, improve physical and mental health and wellbeing and give people a voice in decisions that affect them.

Services include advocacy, social prescribing, lifestyle advice, wellbeing coaching, community mental health transformation, dementia support and the PLUS service, which helps people who are experiencing loneliness or isolation.

Crowngate manager Michael Lloyd said: “ONSIDE does important work in the region and provides an incredible range of services for people who really need the support.”

“As a centre, we pride ourselves on working with both local and national charities on a wide range of activities. We hope by adopting ONSIDE as our chosen charity of the year, we will not only be raising much-needed funds for them but also helping to raise awareness of their valuable work.”

An ONSIDE spokesperson added: “We are so happy to have been chosen as Crowngate’s charity of the year, it is such an honour.

“We are already making plans for working together over the coming 12 months and very much looking forward to hosting collaborative events for the wonderful communities that we support.”
