The service, available at trentbridge.co.uk/trustsupport, provides a list of charities and organisations best-placed to offer help and advice to individuals concerned about issues ranging from anxiety and addiction to discrimination and post-traumatic stress.
The database is designed to complement the Trust’s existing work to give disadvantaged people in Nottinghamshire a sporting chance.
“Over the ten years we’ve been in operation, we’ve found that many of the people we’ve helped simply haven’t known where to turn to get the help they so desperately need,” said Mark Clifford, the Trust’s Community Projects Manager.
"We hope that this online hub can become the first port of call for anyone in the county who is looking for professional support.”
“If you’re struggling with your mental or physical health, or you feel like you’re not being given a fair chance in life, it’s all too easy to feel alone.
“We’re proud that we’ve been able to help hundreds of people across Nottinghamshire in that situation, and hope that this online hub can become the first port of call for anyone in the county who is looking for professional support.”
Since its foundation a decade ago, the Trent Bridge Community Trust has invested millions of pounds into community projects.
Its flagship Positive Futures programme, funded by Rushcliffe Borough Council, has given over 650 young people the confidence and skills to follow their aspirations, whilst the Rushcliffe-funded YouNG Project and the Ready4Work scheme help hundreds of people to secure job experience every year, generating over £250,000 per year for local communities.
Meanwhile, the Healthy Hearts initiative takes an innovative approach to teaching primary-age children the importance of a healthy lifestyle, and the Forget Me Notts programme brings together four other major sports organisations in Nottinghamshire to give those living with dementia the chance to remain physically and mentally active.
