Carer Positive Employer
We are delighted to announce that FDAMH has been officially awarded status as a Carer Positive Employer in Scotland. It is in recognition of the practical and emotional support that the organisation provides to our staff who have caring responsibilities outside of work. It is really important for FDAMH that all of our staff are supported in their ongoing work with the local community, so we are very pleased to receive this formal recognition.

Coronavirus Update 19th March
Face-to-face contact ends, but support continues…
To look after the safety of our staff, volunteers and members of the public, FDAMH has stopped face-to-face contact with clients until further notice.
Continuing to support people and families affected by mental health difficulties is of paramount importance to us and our staff are contacting affected clients to offer them alternative telephone appointments.
Please be assured our services will continue to support you, but they have been adapted to enable us to support clients via the telephone instead. FDAMH’s psychoeducational courses will be postponed. If you are waiting to attend a course and feel you need additional support during the postponement, please contact the Psychoeducational Group Worker, Angie Bell.
Thank you for your continued support.

If you’re donating this Christmas…
Mental Health impacts on every aspect of our lives, so supporting FDAMH might mean you’re helping someone to stay in work, improving life and the future prospects for everyone in a family, stopping someone from feeling so desperately alone or maybe saving someone’s life altogether,
If you’d like to donate this Christmas please pop along to our secure Donations Page (hosted by the Charities Aid Foundation).
FDAMH can only respond to the high demand for services thanks to the generosity of donors and fundraisers.

Welcome Cafe scheme embraced by communities
You may have read a previous story about FDAMH’s Welcome Café scheme. Inspired by a project in Manchester, we’re working to encourage simple everyday connections in our community with the help of enthusiastic local cafés and restaurants. If you’d like to find out more, including which cafés have joined the scheme, click the Welcome Café icon on our front page!
We’re also keen to develop volunteers to support this community-based project. If you like the sound of dropping in on local cafés in the scheme to keep them up-to-date with materials, ideas and a bit of encouragement then please get in touch!
The Falkirk Welcome Community Café project now has 28 cafés and coffee shops on board and they’re all listed on our Welcome Café pages.
We also have a pilot exercise in Stirling with the following cafés involved: Waitrose, Burgh Coffee shop, Stirling University, Recyke-a-bike Causewayhead. Look out for a launch at Waitrose in the next few weeks! And in Alloa we’re delighted to welcome on board ASDA and Ladybird Café.
Our small team of volunteers are vital to the project, they…
• Visit participating cafes, ensure they have enough literature, i.e. cards, posters etc. to promote the service
• Speak to staff and managers and note how the project is going
• Observe in cafés and see how it effective the service is
• Provide regular feedback of comments/suggestions
Visit our volunteering pages to find out more.
Feedback from the public would be greatly appreciated! Have you used the card at a table, been involved in a conversation? You can feedback by getting in touch with Jim…
