NHS say 24% of adults have a diagnosed mental health issue with 1 in 3 remaining undiagnosed. Whilst NHS are trying to address the mental health crisis in England many in Bassetlaw remain in poverty affected by their deep rooted, multiple, complex needs: unemployment, domestic abuse, drug addiction as recorded by Office of National Statistics placing Bassetlaw in the bottom 10% multiple deprivation indices. This project will improve mental health, employment and skills in 500 affected adults.


Lasting Differences provides 1:1 and small group Coaching, Counselling and Advocacy for adults with multiple, complex needs including those who have poor mental health, are in domestic abuse, re-offending, unemployment and/or addiction. We raise people's identity, worth, purpose and skills enabling independence and progression to employment, further learning or volunteering. The project will deliver these services and provide increased opportunities for volunteering and qualifications.

Long-Term Impact

The project will produce both hard and soft outcomes with 500 adults benefitting from improved health and well being, skills sets and increased opportunities for employment, further learning and volunteering. The project will also increase 700 adults' independence, life skills, relationships with self and others which will reduce mental health issues, dependency on drugs and alcohol and the number of domestic abuse offences committed in the area in a 5 year period.
