Direct Help

Bright (the charity that supports Star Wards) is now offering direct support to wards through the organisations that manage them.  If you think we can come and help motivate and develop your service, then feel free to get in touch.

Just to give you a flavour of what we mean, over the past year we have been approached to:

  • Provide independent verification of good practice in a service.
  • Provide a starter training and follow up support to wards who want to introduce the Safewards interventions.
  • Join with a research team on a major research bid.
  • Give advice on developing user friendly, funky and functional web-based resources for a very cool project.

And we promise – if we can’t help you, we will try and find someone who can!

So, even if you THINK we could help – do get in touch.

You might be wondering – what difference does Star Wards actually make to mental health wards? It’s a question we continuously ask ourselves, to make sure that we are having a positive impact. Well, we have over 800 wards signed up to receive our resources and, in the past, we have had Star Wards independently evaluated. A micro-summary of what our users have said is that wards who tried Star Wards ideas had:

This is not about us, it is about people like you. These improvements are down to your hard work. And you can check our newsletters for wards doing amazing things right now. So we are told we do help you make a difference – and we want to get better and be here to help you in the future. So, join up, join in and let us know your wonderful ideas – and if you can donate to us or fundraise for us, we would be delighted to hear from you. Thank you for all you do.
