In response to the cost-of-living crisis, exacerbating the mental health crisis for children and young people, we were extremely proud to maintain all of our core services, as well as expanding our support to include the management of the Wilson Wellbeing Centre in East Merton.
Take a look at the impact of Jigsaw4u's work in recent years through our annual reviews.
Celebrating a 25th Anniversary-year for our charity and continuing to put the pieces back together. Within the review we share our Values which were created by staff, new and existing services that provide support across the whole of South West London, a comprehensive timeline of Jigsaw4u’s history starting from 1997 through to today.
A challenging year where our incredible team worked through professional and personal challenges to remain open following the initial lockdown period providing direct work with service-users, and adapting around restrictions to ensure we were there for anyone who needs us.
2019 to 2020 was a hugely successful period for Jigsaw4u, adding new projects to our pre-existing services, resulting in a record-breaking year for our charity. We also welcomed Richard Whitehead MBE, as our Disability Ambassador with many other wonderful developments for our charity.
We supported an all-time high number of service-users. All of which receiving a professional, compassionate service with a specialised support plan. We also recruited Nathaniel Wood as our first Ambassador (Children and Young People’s Mental Health) who provided lots of time to speak and engage with our service-users.
Following on from our 20th Anniversary, our 21st year saw a range of celebrations which included volunteer parties, service-user Easter Egg hunts and a reception for that was held for commissioners and supporters which was held at the House of Lords and kindly hosted by Lord Clive Brooke of Alverthorpe. We also made it into the Charity Film Award Finals with our film: ‘Talking to Children About Death.’
Our 20th Anniversary
A 20th anniversary is a wonderful achievement for any charity, especially in challenging financial times. This review allowed for us to reflect on our history and how Jigsaw4u always kept true to its original purpose of giving children and young people a voice in the decisions that affect their lives and ‘helping them to put the pieces back together’.
An incredibly exciting year for Jigsaw4u as we were preparing to get going into our 20th Anniversary-year, benefitting from increased community fundraising and support from businesses far and wide. This included one of our young people performing the coin toss at Men’s Wimbledon final which was a phenomenal experience for them.
