AMAZON Donate To Inverclyde Mental Health Charity

22 February, 2021 | Local

A COMMUNITY wellbeing charity in Inverclyde has been bolstered by a £1,000 donation from the Amazon team in Gourock.

Safe Harbour works with people experiencing complex emotional trauma, enabling them to improve their resilience and mental wellbeing.

The charity supports people by increasing self-esteem and self-worth and reducing self-loathing, as well as helping people to improve their coping skills, to allow people to self-manage their own complex issues safely, in relation to difficulties in life.

Safe Harbour plans to use the donation to maintain telephone outreach for those affected by emotional hardship, loneliness and isolation, alongside accessing food parcels for those facing financial problems.

Lorna Sharples, site leader at Amazon in Gourock, said: “Access to the free wellbeing services Safe Harbour offers is more important than ever for the people of Inverclyde.

“We wanted to show our appreciation for all that the charity does in our community by extending this donation and hope that it will allow the team to continue their great work.”

Duncan Shaw, chief executive of Safe Harbour, said: “We have seen increased demand for our support over the past few months, so this money will help us to reach as many people as we possibly can.”
