Launch of the Ey Up! Charity in Calderdale

The Ey Up! charity provides community, mental health and learning disability services in Barnsley, Calderdale, Kirklees and Wakefield. Our Charitable Funds exist to support service users by providing additional resources and activities above and beyond NHS funding.

The service is described in the following way;

Now then. EyUp! is a charity that gives health and happiness t’ Yorkshire folk. We support the work of our Trust and mek a reet difference to community, mental health, wellbeing and learning disability services.

EyUp! helps our reet good staff to give even more, adding a bit o’ summat extra to services. It’s the sort of stuff our NHS can’t always afford – the bobby dazzler ideas that make a proper difference.

We don’t fund NHS services or owt. Instead we go above and beyond, the extra mile, with extra happiness. We can help wi’ things for ward areas – like games or equipment. We can help visitors to our services, with stuff like play areas and dead comfy chairs and that. We can help gi’ people a lift, boost recovery and mek memories – from activity groups to service user trips or funding for community groups.

We’re well proud of our linked charities who are Creative Minds, Spirit in Mind and the Mental Health Museum. Together we’re pulling out all the stops.

See, there’s nowt we like more than working hand in hand with our local communities. We’ve got big ambitions and the drive to match.

EyUp! captures our Yorkshire spirit for givin’ so that everyone can reach their potential and live well.

Si thi.”
