Scheme helps with young people's wellbeing

Barclays Community Foundation has donated £6,000 to an programme which aims to improve the mental and physical wellbeing of young people.

Adventure Therapy, which is run by outdoor adventure team MOBEX, is one of The Children’s Centre’s charitable projects.

Participants are referred to the scheme by mental health professionals from The Children’s Centre, CAMHS and other Isle of Man agencies.

Ian Pilley from Barclays in the Isle of Man says the bank is committed to helping young people reach their goals.

He says this is done by offering funding and support to local charities that share in Barclays' long-term commitment to raising awareness of the importance of good mental health.
