How we began
In 1990, a group of seven providers of community residential mental health services came together and agreed that there were issues they wanted to explore together. This collaboration was later formalised, and in 2000 a national association was formed and Platform Trust was registered as an incorporated society.
Today, Platform reflects the dynamic nature and increase in the contribution of NGO and community providers to support people experiencing mental health and addiction needs.
Platform has been a registered charity with Charities Services since 2008. Our Authorities number is CC27856.
