Brilliant news about the Bridge!

Mind in Harrow is delighted that the Council has listened to the Save The Bridge campaigners and will continue funding the only open-access centre left in Harrow for people experiencing mental health problems.

Leader of Harrow Council, Cllr David Perry, has also announced that The Bridge will be able to stay open for years to come thanks to a new and innovative model of mental health services being run at the centre in partnership with the local community. This follows weeks of counsulations and work to devise a cost-effective solution, informed by the voices of the service users affected.

The Save The Bridge Campaign have said: "It's been inspirational to see people coming together, to see people affected by mental health issues use their varied talents, with each person playing a part. The Campaign has built up a fantastic team, which bodes well for the future working in partnership with the Council in its new service model. This is just the beginning."

Harrow Council have published a press release to accompany this excellent news.

Congratulations and thank you to all the campaigners who worked tirelessly to keep The Bridge open!
