About this cause
Group Hug App is a social enterprise, powered by volunteers. We have groups including farming, ex-services, anxiety and menopause, family and cancer. The app is free and will be a confidential place to chat in a text-based, secure, monitored and professional way. We help with a variety of mental health subjects and signpost where needed.
How this cause brings people in the community together
Group Hug raised £5000 and delivered 1,836 Goody Bags to the vulnerable, long-term sick, nursing mums, key workers and NHS staff. The impact was huge, we pulled the Dales together in these difficult times and gave everyone a mental health boost and spread happiness. We encouraged the community to help each other and for them to get involved to raise money.
