Anxiety UK was established to promote the relief and rehabilitation of persons suffering from agoraphobia and associated anxiety disorders, phobias and conditions, in particular, but not exclusively, by raising awareness in such topics.
We strongly believe that those who have personal experience of living with an anxiety disorder and their support network are well-placed to provide support to others similarly affected. We aspire to support those with anxiety by delivering accessible, personalised services that meet people’s needs with an emphasis on self help, empowerment and self management that builds resilience. We recognise that anxiety can be a long term condition for many people and ongoing support is frequently needed. We develop social capital by creating opportunities for individuals with personal experience of anxiety to give something back and by doing so, helping others. We recognise that everyone’s experience of anxiety is unique and therefore an individualised, holistic approach is taken where choice is offered. We listen to our members and users of our services to ensure that we respond to needs appropriately.
