About the Group

The Willow Tree Group is a support group for people with mental health issues. It is one of the longest established support groups in Dorset, having been running for more than 20 years offering support to those in need.

We are a friendly group who meet on Wednesdays between 10:00am and 2:00pm at the Castleman Bungalow, Peel Close in Blandford Forum for a social meeting and home cooked meal. (For some of us, this is the only home cooked meal we have.)

We also organise our own events and several outings per year along with a traditional Christmas Lunch for all our members.

Until September 2014 we were funded by Dorset County, but now they have decided that they are not willing to support any groups. From now on if we want to keep the group running (we do), we have to raise the money to fund it ourselves. This means raising £8,000 per annum. We are doing this through a range of methods.
