“Working in the Cafeteria gives me a reason to get up in the morning. If I didn’t come I would just sit at home and start thinking about things, then my negative thoughts begin and my depression kicks in’ as I am diagnosed with Bi-polar disorder. I know that I can ring when I am having an off day due to my mental health problems, no questions asked or risk of losing my job. When I come back to work, we can talk about why I couldn’t face work and try and put things in place so it doesn’t happen again”
HOW YOU CAN HELP
Regular funding is extremely important, and we would encourage you to support us with a regular monthly payment from as little as £5 per month. This allows us to plan ahead and ensure our continuity and sustainability. If you are already supporting us in this way it is greatly appreciated as regular funding becomes the backbone and foundation which helps us grow and prosper.
GIFT AID DONATION:
If you pay tax in Gibraltar on your income, gains or profits and then make a Gift Aid donation, locally registered charities can claim back standard rate tax relating to that donation directly from the Income Tax Office. As a result, any gift made, as a Gift Aid donation, is worth more to the charity than the amount actually donated directly by the donor. Anyone is eligible to make a Gift Aid donation.
ORGANIZE AN EVENT OR FUNDRAISER IN AID OF POSITIVE PATHWAYS:
Why not get together with your friends or colleagues and organize a fund raiser in aid of Positive Pathways. We are very grateful for those individuals, groups and organizations who have already done fund raising on our behalf.
A GIFT IN YOUR WILL:
As a small charity remembering us in your will can make a real difference in helping us to continue our work. This protects your legacy and is the only sure way to control what happens to any money or possessions we have when we pass on.
A DONATION IN REMEMBRANCE
To celebrate the life of a loved one some families have collected donations in lieu of floral tributes. In this way the memory of your loved one will live on through the work we do by allowing us to help others to recover from mental illness.
SUPPORT OUR TRANSITIONAL EMPLOYMENT PLACEMENT:
You and your company can help end the vicious cycle of dependence and isolation that so often prolongs the devastating effects of mental illness on individuals and their families by joining the community of businesses around the world that are helping Clubhouse members become respected members of society through employment. We would require a part time placement of a few hours per week at basic rate and we would provide support to both the employer and employee.
There are different options:
- You can provide the placement supported by Positive Pathways
- You can sponsor a placement provided by Positive Pathways
- You can provide a placement sponsored by another company and managed by Positive Pathways
