We’re proud supporters of Anxiety UK and like to ‘do our bit’ by helping out their Communications team however and whenever we can! For the last few years, we’ve been providing a proofreading service to assist with the publication of their quarterly magazine, Anxious Times. We’re pleased to add that we’re now also offering support with their social media profiles on Twitter and Facebook!
Although a charity relying on generous donations, Anxiety UK provides an unrivalled support service to those suffering from anxiety and related disorders such as panic attacks, obsessive compulsive disorder and a range of phobias. Their website and telephone service provide a lifeline for those who are deeply affected by debilitating feelings such as intense fear and distress:
“Anxiety UK receives more than 15,000 calls to the helpline and requests for support via email each year and more than 30,000 new visitors to their website a month. Since 1970, the charity has provided essential support to more than 1 million people throughout the UK.”
AUK volunteers are mostly healthcare professionals or those with direct experience of an anxiety disorder, which enables them to offer a uniquely personal advice service for anyone who is experiencing anxious thoughts and feelings or if they’ve just been diagnosed with Generalised Anxiety Disorder by their GP.
The AUK team works tirelessly to provide a wellbeing support service for thousands of people across the UK and we wanted to show our support too. Lots of people choose to run a marathon or jump from a plane to raise money for their charity but to be honest, we’re just not that brave! (and hats off to those who are!) Instead, we’ve chosen to offer whatever skills we can to an organisation which has the best interests of its members at its heart; strives continuously to raise awareness of anxiety and reminds us that we can all do a little something extra to support each other through difficult periods.
