Following a brief formal business meeting, John Nicholson and Michael Lafond, Mental Health Chaplain and Chaplaincy Peer Worker at the Cambridgeshire & Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust, will give a talk on
Being human, together.
The Revd John Nicholson has been Senior Chaplain at CPFT since 2004 having previously been the Industrial Chaplain in the Burnham & Slough Deanery, from 1995. He moved to that role from Merseyside where he was
a community minister. Michael Lafond is a graduate of CPFT’s innovative peer worker training programme and is employed in that role with chaplaincy.

The Friends of Fulbourn Hospital and the Community was established in 1952, and is a Registered Charity.
We are a group of people who support the care, welfare and recovery of sufferers from mental illness, whatever their age, who are or who have been associated with Fulbourn Hospital. We aim to increase the understanding of mental illness and the needs and problems of patients, and their carers, amongst people outside the Hospital.
We are run by a Management Committee, with no paid staff. Administrative costs are therefore very low, and nearly all the money goes into supporting patients.
In the community we seek to support the recovery and integration of those with mental health problems in a number of ways, notably by running Forum Lunch Clubs, supporting bereavement counselling for mental health sufferers and offering limited financial resources. We also inform public debate on mental health issues.
We are grateful to those whose subscriptions and donations and voluntary help have continued to support our work. There is a growing need for our activities and funding. We are pleased that we continue to have good links with the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust.
We are currently seeking to recruit both new trustees and an organiser for a new Forum Lunch. Details about each of these roles can be found at:
