Welcome To The Clockwork Trust
The Clockwork Charitable Trust is a registered charity based in Oxted, Surrey, which offers support and information to young adults in Oxted and the surrounding district suffering with depression and anxiety, with the aim of helping relieve this suffering.
The idea for Clockwork was born out of tragic circumstances. In June 2016, seventeen-year-old Billy Plowman, of Oxted, decided to end his own life. Just a year prior nineteen-year-old Molly Green, also of Oxted, had made the same choice. Both were extremely talented young adults, so loved by friends and family and so admired by those who knew them. And yet, both felt they could not go on living.
Matt Hayes, owner of Idol Hands Music School (where Billy, an excellent guitarist, had developed his talent), felt more needed to be done to support young people in the local community, like Billy and Molly, suffering with depression. And so, Clockwork was born.
Now a registered charity, Clockwork seeks to achieve its aim through two primary means: by providing financial assistance to help young people access local counselling and mental health services; and by seeking to promote and protect good mental health, through services such as peer listening, support groups and information provision. To carry out this work, Clockwork relies on a programme of fundraising events and activities, either organised by the charity itself or on its behalf by supporters. The charity receives no government or local authority funding.
