Culture is key to Barnwood Trust. Employees are encouraged to share their thoughts and voice their opinions on core issues from strategic partnership decisions and engagement in the community, to where funds are awarded and how the organisation builds relationships.

A Gloucestershire-focused charitable foundation, Barnwood Trust has been working to make a difference to the lives of people with mental health challenges since 1794. Since 2011, the organisation has also placed a focus on providing the best possible environment for disabled people within the local area.

The foundation aims to make sure that there are opportunities for disabled people and people with mental health challenges to realise their ambitions, do the things they wish to do within their time, and to be involved in their community whilst having influence over the country.

Barnwood Trust achieves this through listening and sharing learning to help people understand more about disability and mental health in Gloucestershire, building partnerships with people and organisations to create more opportunities, increasing access, and offering support through funding to individuals and organisations.

It says learning together about mental health support provides a foundation for healthy working practices and investment in organisational development enables people and teams to collaborate constructively.
