Investing in Volunteers
During July 2018, Shropshire MHS were awarded the Investing in Volunteering accreditation as a reflection of the value we place on our wonderful team of volunteers. To achieve the standard, we underwent a rigorous series of interviews where we had to demonstrate how we recruit, train and develop our volunteers.
We were delighted to achieve this accreditation, since our volunteers are the life blood of Shropshire MHS. Without them, we wouldn’t be able to support the many hundreds of people with mental ill-health that we do.
Mayor’s Award for Shropshire Sanctuary
During 2018, we were delighted to be awarded the Gold Award in

Shropshire Sanctuary is our overnight crisis service, which provides a safe haven for anyone in Shropshire who is experiencing a mental health crisis. Visitor access is via referral only.

We were runners up in the 2019 Thrive Awards where we were presented with a mental health star certificate. The award ceremony was held at West Bromwich Albion Football Ground.

We are delighted to announce that Shropshire MHS has been awarded a Thrive Mental Health Star Award for 2020. We were presented with this prestigious accolade for the outstanding work carried out by Shropshire Sanctuary – our overnight crisis service.
