Switched On at Blackfriars Settlement

Improving life opportunities for those with severe and enduring mental health conditions

The Maudsley Charity has funded the The Switched On project, which aims to help improve life opportunities and support the transition into education, volunteering and work for people with severe and enduring mental health difficulties, through regular, informal digital support in a friendly and sociable weekly club. 

Digital access and skills are vital in successfully navigating day to day online activities/interactions (benefits, housing, online security, medical and other appointments etc) but which can prove overwhelming for those with mental health conditions.
