Chapter, who support people experiencing mental health issues in the West Cheshire area, has received a £500 grant from Equilibrium Asset Management.

The Cheshire-based charity, set up in 1991 to create a positive life for those experiencing mental health issues across Chester, Ellesmere Port and Neston, will use the funds to organise several one-off group activities for its service users over the winter months.

The Equilibrium Asset Management Community Scheme aims to support organisation in the community which help disadvantages members of the public. The Scheme also promotes sport and the arts, support education and development and benefit the environment in Chester, the Wirral and Wales.

However, projects that promote party political activities or religious causes, projects that benefit or involve animals and commercial enterprises are not accepted.

Chief Officer Clare Ashworth said: “Equilibrium’s support goes much further than the initial
donation. It means our polytunnel project can continue to be a place for vulnerable and isolatedpeople with severe mental illness to go to make a new friend in a safe and welcoming environment.”

She continued, ““We are delighted that Equilibrium has supported our service-users to develop greater confidence, and learn new skills.”

Equilibrium Asset Management has run the scheme since 2015 and awarded over £11,000 in funds to community groups to date.

Wilmslow headquartered Equilibrium Asset Management says applications to the first round of this year’s community support scheme can be submitted up until March 25.
