2023 – It’s a wrap

It’s a wrap!

As we bid farewell to 2023 and eagerly embrace the possibilities of a new chapter, it’s time to reflect on the remarkable journey we’ve been on together this year. 2023 has been a year of growth for knus.

knus is a non profit organisation, which is fully volunteer driven. This means everyone involved, including everyone in management and our multi disciplinary management committee, is a volunteer. With this in mind, we want to thank all volunteers around the country for their hard work and commitment. Without our volunteers, knus’s mission and success wouldn’t be possible. Our volunteers positive attitude, enthusiasm, and willingness to go above and beyond have not gone unnoticed, and we are incredibly grateful to have them as a part of our team.

The main objective of knus is to help those in need of mental health support and to offer this free of charge, within hours, not months. To enhance our reach this year, we’ve created partnerships with government organisations such as the Department for Work & Pensions, MPs, the NHS, councils, food banks, education, financial institutions and the emergency services. We want to thank all of our partnered organisations, as these connections have truly made a difference in the lives of those we serve, as a result of their signposting.

We also want to thank Hatch Enterprise for their support and guidance, which has resulted in huge positive changes to our internal processes, systems and apps which we are launching in 2024.

Lastly, we want to thank the organisations that have made knus possible because of technology credit grants and support. Every penny helps connect those in need, to volunteers that have a lived experience of mental health.

As we step into the new year, let us carry forward the lessons learned and the resilience gained from the challenges of 2023. With hope in our hearts and a shared commitment to positive change, we can look forward to a future where compassion, innovation, and unity continue to guide our path.

Here’s to the journey ahead, filled with new opportunities, growth, and the unwavering belief in our collective ability to shape a brighter tomorrow.

With heartfelt gratitude, Happy New Year to You All!
