We are extremely proud to announce that this year is Oakleaf’s 25th Anniversary as a charity.


Oakleaf became a registered charity on 22 September 1997 and has been helping the community manage its mental ill-health ever since; having started with just 40 clients, we now support over 800 people each year.


To all those who have shown their support over the last 25 years and to those who continue to do so – thank you. It really does make all the difference.
