Last year six bids were awarded funding. These were the transformation of a concrete area at the Brunel Family Centre in Westminster into a vegetable and flower garden; the creation of an enchanting wall mural in the Child and Family Department waiting room by the artist Jennifer Camiller; the setting up of a Patient Emergency Fund; a donation to the Santé Refugee Befriending Project to support refugee and asylum seekers to access our services; slippers for the pupils at the Tavistock Children’s Day Unit; and the introduction of new throws, cushions and rugs into the therapy rooms of the Child and Family Department and the Adolescent Department.
