What is Natural Presence?

Natural Presence (NP) is a local, user-led mind, body and soul therapy service, offering group social activities and one-to-one programmes which emphasise preventing mental illness and emphasising equal weight to both mental and physical health and which complement National Health Services.

 

Mission Statement

 

The purpose of Natural Presence (NP) is to:

  • Provide high quality, enduring emotional/physical services, emphasising equal status between mind and body.

  • Increase awareness of the connection between physical, emotional and psychological health and wellbeing

  • Create preventative services to help manage personal stress factors

  • Building resilience and skills to deal with life's challenges

 

Our Values

 

  • Courage and Honesty to bring to the fore mental & physical health issues where stigma still exists

  • Determination and Commitment to support local, vulnerable people in their development and self worth

  • Integrity and Transparency to challenge systems, principles and policies that don’t work in practice

  • Creativity and Open-mindedness to new methods of working which benefit local people

  • Efficiency and Effectiveness to make a difference in people's lives

Status

 

Natural Presence was formed in August 2017 as a Company Limited by Guarantee (a not-for-profit organisation) Reg. No. 10902165, and will be applying for Registered Charity status in the near future. There are currently 3 directors/trustees (with no share capital) and 1 Ex-officio member of the board who meet bi-monthly. The day to day running of the organisation is through the director.

 

Whilst still a new company, we are currently funded through the Big Lottery Fund (by Connect Hackney and the Ageing Better Programme), a two-year programme for people over 50 years old who are at risk of social isolation. We encourage our service users to recognise the holistic approach as our services relate to that practice.
