Fosse introduces a Friendship Service for Leicester clients, in support of Mental Health Awareness Week 2021

Tuesday, May 11th, 2021

In honour of, and to coincide with, Mental Health Awareness Week, Fosse Healthcare has teamed up with Beaumont Hall (part of Ideal Carehomes) to launch a Friendship Service for all Leicester clients.

The pilot service is a free penpal and letter writing service, which we hope will offer our clients and the residents of Beaumont Hall a little bit of comfort and friendship in these new and ever-changing times.

This pilot is brand spanking new and all the fun and interesting days are still ahead of us, but we already have a lot of clients on board and will begin the ‘matching’ process this week.

We can only imagine how big this project could grow, but if you would like to know more or would like to put your name down as a potential ‘penpal’ for our clients and Beaumont Hall’s residents, you can email us, and we’ll send your emails along to our Mental Health First Aider, Hannah.

All letters are distributed by Fosse and/or Beaumont hall and all penpals are fully vetted, so no private information will be shared by us.
