At Jumar, we are committed to supporting mental health and wellbeing initiatives. Over the past 12 months, we have partnered with Birmingham Mind in various activities, including fundraising during our Jumar Pride Picnic and participating in the Move More for March campaign.


About Birmingham Mind

Birmingham Mind was founded in 1962 and is affiliated to Mind. Its services are individualised, person centred and deliver valued outcomes, as Birmingham Mind passionately believes that everyone has the right to live lives that are meaningful, and which enable them to reach their full potential as individuals. It has a well-earned reputation for excelling in its support and service quality and it plays a key role in supporting and influencing the wider mental health system across Birmingham and Solihull.

Key services include:

The Birmingham, Mental Health and Wellbeing Hub service is a combined integrated, innovative service delivered through a partnership led by Birmingham Mind with its partner Creative Support. Each Hub offers 1:1 recovery support planning, recovery-focused activities and support to develop peer-led support networks and groups. However, we have developed the service to offer a blended mix of virtual activities and face-to-face support sessions.

Birmingham Mind’s Helpline provides advice and information to people experiencing mental health difficulties, their families, professionals and the wider public. The Helpline is accessible 24hrs a day, every day by calling 0121 262 3555 (Freephone 0800 915 9292).

More information about the Helpline.

Birmingham Mind has two residential care homes, which both offer 24-hour staff cover. Support is person-centred; by placing the person at the centre of their support ensures that they, with staff support, are able to identify and achieve their goals and aspirations.

Birmingham Mind’s Vulnerable Adult Service (VAS)  – Lead Worker Service provides face-to-face, person-centred support to enable people with a mental health diagnosis, to have more control over their health, wellbeing and finances, to be safe and secure in their own homes and empower them to be more active within their communities.

Birmingham Mind’s Vulnerable Adult Supported Housing Service is accommodation that is managed by Birmingham Mind and owned by one of three partner Housing Associations. Supported Housing offers support on an appointment basis between 9am – 9pm, 7 days a week, staff are not based on site.

The aim of Birmingham Mind’s Talking Space service is to provide a safe, welcoming place where people can go outside of normal working hours, instead of A&E or other urgent services, if they are feeling emotionally distressed or are in a mental health crisis.
