Kingston Council and Fircroft Trust working together on future plans

Fircroft Trust and Kingston Council have agreed to work together to secure premises enabling the trust to continue its work to support people with mental health issues and learning disabilities.

Following a constructive meeting the two organisations committed to work together to find premises that are fit and safe for the charity to continue to offer services for adults with mental health and learning disability issues in the community.

Kay Harris, from The Fircroft Trust, said:

“The meeting facilitated by local MP Sir Ed Davey is a welcome beginning of constructive talks to enable us to move forward positively and find solutions to continue our work with the residents of Kingston that need support with their mental health, we are pleased to be able to work alongside RBK to progress this."

Kingston Council leader, Councillor Caroline Kerr, said:

“I’m really pleased that we are working together to support the services of the Fircroft Trust. Following a meeting with the trust, we believe we can find solutions that will enable the trust’s important work to continue."
