The Willdife Trust for Birmingham and the Black Country
The Wildlife Trust for Birmingham and the Black Country has been protecting wildlife and restoring wild spaces for 40 years after we were established as the first ‘urban’ Wildlife Trust in the UK in 1980.
We have created and restored hundreds of sites across Birmingham and the Black Country from rivers, meadows and woodlands. Our environmental education centres provide thousands of young people with access to nature every year.
We all benefit from connecting with nature, so donate your commute to help us continue to create a high quality network of greenspace that enables people and wildlife to thrive.
Arrive Alive funds vital lifesaving vehicles and equipment for Community First Responder groups (CFR’s) who attend life threatening medical emergencies. CFR’s are volunteers who are deployed via a 999 call, they can reach a medical emergency prior to a road or air ambulance.
Equipment and vehicles are not funded by the government or ambulance service.
Bethel Health and Healing Network
Bethel Health and Healing Network is a multi-award winning charity that was first registered in 2006.
Bethel’s flagship programme is the Doula Service, which provides practical and emotional support to vulnerable and isolated pregnant women during and after their pregnancies. The support is delivered by a team of employed doulas and 30 trained volunteer doulas, assisted by professional midwives and support workers. Bethel also runs a listening service for people suffering from low-level mental health challenges e.g. depression, anxiety, and isolation.
We need support to develop a telephone listening service for people suffering with enhanced forms of isolation and anxiety as a result of COVID 19. We will deliver online training to equip listeners who are willing to spare a couple of hours each week to listen to potential clients who need a listening ear. Full training will be given.
