Our partners in the Oxfordshire Mental Health Partnership (OMHP) have been winning awards over the last month: Wendy Lynch, a long-standing volunteer at Oxfordshire Mind, won an award at the OCVA charity awards.

Wendy has volunteered at the Oxfordshire Mind Witney hub for six years, helping to set up the ‘Get into Reading’ peer support group, to encourage service users to read and explore stories to promote positive mental wellbeing.

Volunteers play an important role both within the Oxfordshire Mental Health Partnership and at Oxford Health: find out more about volunteering at the partnership and at Oxford Health.

Restore, another of the OMHP partners, was also the winner of The Oxford Times Charity and Community Awards at the 2018 Oxfordshire Business awards (pictured) on 15th June 2018. Following the win, Lesley Dewhurst, Restore’s co-chief executive, said: “This award is dedicated to the members of Restore, who benefit so much from the work we do to aid mental health recovery.”
