Help us create safe places in a world that can feel unsafe

‘Here’s to the future, to speaking to the broken, the lonely, the outcasts, the scared, to those who don’t know how valuable they are, those who feel stigmatised. We’re not coming with patronising messages or black or white answers but with love, reaching out our hand to grab yours, to walk alongside you for a while and whisper into your ears how precious you are and that you are made in the image of God. You are enough. You belong and you will discover treasure in those scars. Let’s embrace integrity, risk-taking and authenticity. Bring on the wrestling – it’s time for a new journey to begin.’

To grow this vision, we need YOUR help – will you give a gift, walking with us as we walk alongside hurting people? By giving a donation of £10 or £20, or giving or increasing your regular monthly donation, you can make a massive difference!

Thank you!

John’s* story

John now knows what it feels like to belong. Following a series of failed relationships and lack of support and direction, his mental health deteriorated rapidly. He was self-harming, overdosing with drugs and alcohol, disengaged with society, and planned to take his own life. But then he joined a Kintsugi Wellbeing group.

‘Hearing Kintsugi Hope’s motto – Finding treasure in life’s scars – was the best thing: realising it’s ok not to be ok, that scars are battle scars rather than things to be ashamed of, and that I’m not the only person going through bad things. Attending the group was a great way to safely socialise with people where you can speak about how you’re feeling and not be judged. The people you meet become your friends. It’s a deeper level of friendship and support. Makes life a lot easier having people you can answer the question “how are you?” honestly’.
