Our partnerships

Bridewell works closely with other services in the area including with the wider voluntary and community sector in the county and as a member of the Oxfordshire Mental Health Partnership.


Working with Oxford NHS Foundation Trust we receive referrals through the Adult Mental Health Teams in Banbury, Oxford, and Witney. Bridewell also supports people with next steps through connections with local volunteering opportunities, wellbeing services and community projects.

Our goals for 2023

As a small local charity about to reach the milestone of 30 years of service delivery, we carefully prioritise where our resources go to make sure we can achieve the most impact for people whose lives have been affected by serious mental ill health.

Reducing barriers

Working closely with referrers to support people to access Bridewell's recovery service.

Opportunities beyond Bridewell

Building connections with community groups, next steps for paid and voluntary work.


People who have experience of mental ill health are involved in making decisions and developing Bridewell.


Making sure Bridewell can continue providing support for the next 30 years.
