We may be a small, local charity, but our work is solid and our dreams are big!  Your support has made this possible.


Over the years, we have been fortunate to receive funding from Essex County Council, Public Health England and the Big Lottery Fund, as well as from other trusts, foundations, companies and individuals.  We are very grateful for this support and would like to think that our partners are pleased with our work in return.  Things in our sector are tough though and funding is at an all time low. 

We find that the most vulnerable people in society are usually the ones who are affected the hardest by cuts in services.  So, we persevere and look to you, our supporters, to persevere, too.

Please keep spreading the word about what we do and why it is important. Keep talking about mental health and how crucial it is for people who struggle, to have support.  And most of all, keep us in mind when you see an opportunity, when you're looking for a good cause to support, or when you have a little bit of time or money to spare.

If you are looking to fundraise for us, we would love to hear from you.  Whether you are taking part in a race, put on a coffee morning or look to undertake any of the wonderful challenges or ideas out there to raise money, we can support your efforts and cheer you along.  We might still be short on supplies, but we are very rich in enthusiasm and creativity!  We can provide information about our work by giving you leaflets and help you with posters, sponsorship forms and banners, and are always happy to attend your functions to talk about what we do.  So don't hesitate, but get in touch by email, phone or snail mail here.

We use PayPal to process donations made by card; all transactions are therefore safe and traceable.  PayPal also has a charity scheme that charges very little for using their services.  If you wish to donate by cheque, please make it out to 'Phoenix Homes Colchester' and post it to us, or if you prefer to make a donation by BACS, please get in touch so we can provide you with the relevant details.  Whatever you do though, please include your contact details, so we can THANK YOU.
