We offer personal development, training, work experience and employment opportunities to people who are recovering from mental ill health.
Clients can either self-refer or are referred to us by health clinicians, GP's or by Job Centre Plus staff amongst many other organisations.
Our services include 35 community outreach 1:1 vocational workers, a media focussed work fitness project, our Enablement Project which aims to engage people in social inclusion and leisure activities and our newly developed Freestyle project for young people. For project specific information please call 01726 862727 and we will send you a full leaflet pack.
People with mental ill-health can have few social contacts. At Pentreath we recognise that supporting people to access facilities within their local community is an effective approach to develop skills, raise confidence and enhance employment opportunities.
Pentreath services are led by the needs of the participants; therefore, we are continually changing and adapting our activities to meet these needs. Pentreath helps individuals to overcome multiple barriers to employment and increase their potential and as an organisation Pentreath relies solely on outside funding, due to its charitable status.
'I feel that Pentreath for me have got the right
balance. They are supportive, helpful and offer ideas
for difficulties that appear but allow me enough room
to try myself to deal with things and think of solutions
but are continually there quietly supporting but
stepping in straight away if they need to.'
