A Place to Belong

Featured

Building communities in mental healthA Place to Belong is a small organisation working to build inclusion for people who experience mental health challenges.

We do this by encouraging and developing the capacity of the community to welcome and include others.

Our vision is to facilitate inclusive community through building networks of contact and friendship, so that people who have been marginalised can experience inclusion, acceptance, friendship and respect.

We are constantly searching for community-minded people who want to be committed to including others in their lives. We aim to inspire and enable these threads of connection, camaraderie and friendship.

If you would like to explore the possibility of offering friendship to others who are excluded and are struggling to find their place to belong, contact us.

If you have any insights to share about how belonging and inclusion can be developed or facilitated for people please share these with us, contact us.

The most precious resource we have for coping with life in an unstable, discontinuous and revolutionary world is not information but each other. (Hugh Mackay)
