The Matthew Trust is a mental health group, as well as being a "last-stop" client response agency with grant-making facilities. It is concerned with mentally disordered people in the community who offend because of inadequate services that do not reach those that need them, and those who are made to feel ashamed of being mentally ill and are vulnerable and at risk.
The Trust's clients are mainly referrals from hospitals, the probation service, voluntary agencies, and health authority/social services workers. Many are the mentally ill in prison or those recently discharged, as well as patients and former patients of special hospitals. Others include single parent families where mental distress has developed, and victims of aggression who are suffering from trauma-induced mental conditions.
