TADS was born in January 2014 when a group of women in Barnsley, that had experienced mental health issues themselves, came together to offer some support to others

 

We became a Charitable Unincorporated Organisation and began applying for funding to provide free complementary therapies to the people of Barnsley.

 

We received our first funding in 2014 from South Yorkshire Community Foundation, this funding allowed us to purchase equipment and to offer taster sessions of therapies to let people know what we were all about.

 

Also in 2014 we received two grants from BMBC to offer free complementary therapies to unpaid carers.  These therapies were desperatley needed as the wonderful carers that we met were in dire need of some time out and relaxation from their stressful roles.

 

We have since been very fortunate to gain funding from The Big Lottery, Reaching Communities to open our Young People's Wellbeing Centre.  The funding runs for five years from October 2015, thank you so much Big Lottery for making this happen in Barnsley.

 

We soon realised that complementary therapies were not needed in our work with children and young people and therefore began working on an 8 week workshop to teach young people coping techniques and offer support.  This is now our main function.  We do offer 1:1 coaching sessions to people who struggle in group sessions.

 

More recently we have received funding from Paul Hamlyn Foundation and Comic Relief which has allowed us to rent huge premises on Queens Road, Barnsley.
