The Federation is a membership-based
Charity set up to support its locally based and independent
Members who develop and provide mental health services in their
community. We formed ourselves as a result of a Forum organised
by the Matthew Trust in the House of Lords in February 1996.
More than 120 representatives of 86 agencies attended and agreed
that the Federation should be formed. As many again wrote in
with support after that meeting, and we now have 239 voting
and associate members who in total represent more than 150,000
service users in the UK. The Federation is incorporated as a
Company limited by Guarantee (number 3236769) and is a registered
Charity (number 1058342) ARE YOU INTERESTED?
