Our Campaigns

Foothold is a small organisation but we have big plans. We're planning to triple the number of people we help by 2022 and to do that we're constantly looking at ways we can provide support. Through our campaigns, we're working hard to break down the stigma in asking for support, to build awareness and to raise funds to help us support more of our community. And with your help we can reach more people than ever before - find out more about our campaigns and ways you can get involved.

Have a look at what we've been up to:

#KeepTalking (November 2020)
