Welcome to The Burrough Harmony Centre

Offering compassion, support and understanding for adults needing help with their mental health and wellbeing.

Let's talk mental health

Mental Health & Wellbeing

Our vision is to create a world where no-one feels alone in their struggles and seeking help is a sign of strength.

A friendly, welcoming, informal service offering peer support, information, signposting and a variety of enjoyable groups and activities for local people who are living with a mental health problem.

For anyone reaching a mental health crisis the Community Front Room provides a non judgmental and safe space to talk and be listened to.

No referrals required for our services.

The King's Award for Voluntary Service

The Burrough Harmony Centre based in Bridport have just been awarded The King’s Award for Voluntary Service. This is the highest award a local voluntary group can receive in the UK and is equivalent to an individual receiving an MBE.

Harmony is one of 262 local charities, social enterprises and voluntary groups to receive the prestigious award this year. Their work, along with others from across the UK, reminds us of all the ways fantastic volunteers are contributing to their local communities and working to make life better for those around them.

The King’s Award for Voluntary Service aims to recognise outstanding work by local volunteer groups to benefit their communities. It was created in 2002 to celebrate Queen Elizabeth II’s Golden Jubilee and, following his accession, His Majesty the King emphasised his desire to continue the Award. Recipients are announced annually on 14th November, The King’s Birthday.

Representatives of The Burrough Harmony Centre will receive the award and certificate from Mr Angus Campbell, Lord-Lieutenant of Dorset in 2024. In addition, two people from the organisation will attend a garden party at Buckingham Palace in May and June 2024, along with other recipients of this year’s Award.

Alison Cliffe, Trustee says: “We are delighted that the work our volunteers contribute to the delivery of our services has been recognised. Their involvement in The Burrough Harmony Centre is essential to what we do and they bring an invaluable energy and commitment to this vital community mental health and wellbeing hub”.

Harmony are always keen to welcome new volunteers to our team

We are looking for some new trustees, and hope to find people with business, public sector or charity knowledge/skills.  We would particularly, but not exclusively, welcome people with experience of communications and marketing, strategic HR or IT . No previous Trustee experience is required; however, enthusiasm and energy are needed to help us plan and deliver further growth and development.
