30 Oct NEWS: New Oakleaf Patron: HM Lord-Lieutenant of Surrey
We are delighted to announce that HM Lord-Lieutenant of Surrey Michael More-Molyneux has accepted our invitation to become a Patron for Oakleaf. He will be joining fellow Oakleaf Patrons Dame Penelope Keith and Shaun Attwood. We very much look forward to working together for better mental health in Surrey as we move towards 2021.
Tuesday 27th October
Mr More-Molyneux spent an Autumn afternoon at Oakleaf, receiving an update on the work we are doing to support adults who are struggling with their mental health as the Covid-19 crisis continues. We introduced Mr More-Molyneux to several members of the Oakleaf team – in a socially distanced capacity – and shared how the pandemic has impacted the charity and those we support.
Mr More-Molyneux has lived in Surrey all his life. Since his appointment as Lord-Lieutenant in 2015 he has been involved with an increasing number of charities and good causes; including his wonderful support of Oakleaf over the years.
As for many people, this year has been very difficult for our hundreds of clients. Now, as the nights get colder and the leaves turn, we are looking towards winter and the impact the pandemic will have on our clients over the coming months.
We remain open for clients during this difficult time; we are currently running face-to-face training, counselling and wellbeing activities in a limited capacity with Covid-19 safety measures in place. In addition, we continue to offer wellbeing support online and over the phone.
Whatever the level of restrictions during the upcoming winter months, Oakleaf will be here to ensure all clients have access to support.

A huge thank you to HM Lord-Lieutenant of Surrey for his continued support of Oakleaf. Together, we will continue to challenge and reduce the stigma of mental illness in the Surrey community.
