Funding for West Wellbeing Suicide Prevention

West Wellbeing Suicide Prevention received an Asda Foundation grant for £25,000 to create an extra safe space for delivering vital services. 

The local charity based in Belfast delivers a range of services including art therapy and counselling to support adults, children and families affected by or experiencing poor mental health. 

Asda Foundation funding will enable the charity to increase its number of counselling and therapy rooms, helping to double its capacity, meet increased demand for services and secure the long-term sustainability of their vital services.

Here is Sharon, Community Champion representing Asda Belfast Westwood, surprising the group with the news that their application has been successful.


Desy Jones, Director of Care at West Wellbeing Suicide Prevention, said: “We really appreciate everything you’ve done for us. This Asda Foundation grant will enable us to extend our services by creating an extra safe space to deliver our work. We want to be able to help so many more families and help people individually, this grant gives us a much better workspace and will help us reach our full potential. It’s not often I’m stumped for words, but I really am. Thank you, Asda Foundation!”  

Sharon McBratney, local Asda Community Champion, said: “I was delighted to present West Wellbeing Suicide Prevention with a cheque for £25,000 from The Asda Foundation. This group is delivering such important work and the grant will make a huge difference. This amazing local charity helps families and children who have been affected by suicide and this funding will enable the group to support even more people.”
