Meet some of our fabulous team! We are an ever-changing charity, and we respond to the needs of our local community, so there are often new faces at TOG Mind. Here are some of them below:
Our leadership team is made up of the CEO, directors, and department heads. We are responsible for ensuring the organisation runs according to its charitable objectives, strategy, and values.
We are all passionate around mental health and wellbeing, and believe as a charity Tameside, Oldham & Glossop Mind occupies a special place in the landscape of mental health services, constantly innovating, adapting and serving our communities.
We are inspired by the power of people and communities who influence local and national government just by getting involved. We are keen to hear from people who want to get involved with us in making our mission “enabling everyone to achieve better mental health” a reality.
Children and Young People
Our Children and Young Peoples’ team is made up of Education Specialists, Youth Workers, Practitioners, and Volunteers who provide a huge range of services across Tameside, Oldham, Glossop, and Rochdale.
We are all passionate about reducing mental health stigma and work closely with schools to help educate parents, carers, and teachers and also to build resilience in children and young people as a preventative measure to help reduce the likelihood of mental health issues developing.
We are motivated to support children and young people to access the appropriate service that they need to help them deal with difficult situations that might be happening in their lives. To enable this, we provide a number of services that children and young people can access including 1-2-1 interventions and group work, as well as working with parents and carers to build a better understanding of the impact mental health and emotional wellbeing has on young people.
Community Early Intervention
Education and Development
The café team are a mixture of volunteers and paid staff; they all work together as a team to help each other make the best vegetarian / vegan food from locally sourced and donated food.
We aspire to make the café a great place to sit, eat, and relax for the general public, volunteers and staff. Our ethos for the café is to produce good, healthy nutritional food for a reasonable price.
Our volunteers are the backbone to the way the kitchen runs, so to help them to help us we provide training in Food Safety, Barista Skills, and Customer Service. In return we have a great team and a great space for people to come into either for a coffee and a cake or for a full meal. We hope to give everyone an enjoyable and tasty experience.
