Lancashire and South Cumbria NHS Foundation Trust are now signposting to the Hub of Hope
Lancashire and South Cumbria NHS Foundation Trust has selected Chasing the Stigma’s Hub of Hope to become their new signposting tool, directing people to life-changing and even lifesaving support.
The partnership comes as the UK faces a growing mental health crisis. During 2022, mental health services in England witnessed an unprecedented surge in demand, with a remarkable 4.6 million referrals received—an increase of 22% compared to 2019. And the number of individuals seeking assistance from mental health services has been consistently on the rise. (British Medical Association, 2023)
By signposting to the Hub of Hope they will be directing hundreds of thousands of people to a wealth of support options across the UK, including our own services and groups, which will be added to the app database. With Chasing the Stigma’s dedicated team consistently updating the directory, the Hub of Hope will provide accurate and relevant information to help individuals find the right support in their local communities.
