The Satellite Foundation

Satellite Foundation General Appeal

The Satellite Foundation works with children, young people and their families where a parent has a mental illness.

The Satellite Foundation aims to provide opportunities to enhance the health, wellbeing and community connectedness of children, young people and their families where a parent has a mental illness.

We will do this by:

  • Working in partnership with families, children, young people, services and the community.
  • Developing and supporting a robust, dynamic and committed workforce of staff including volunteers.
  • Recognizing that every family is unique and different.
  • Taking a non-blaming approach to mental illness/ill-health.
  • Taking the view that families and individuals can reach their own solutions to challenges if given the right environment.
  • Embracing peer support as a powerful tool in assisting young people and their families.
  • Celebrating achievements however small they may seem.
  • Connecting with children and young people as a part of their family system.
  • Respecting cultural, spiritual and individual difference.
  • Evaluating and reflecting on our work and our outcomes to ensure they are in line with our values and vision.
