Sval supports Ønsketransporten, Fontenehuset and PsykOpp
Sval Energi steps in as supporter of Ønsketransporten, Fontenehuset and PsykOpp, and will contribute financially to their activities in 2024.
Nikolai Lyngø, CEO of Sval Energi, said: “We want to support initiatives that aim to improve mental and physical health, particularly among youth, and initiatives that help people who experience a challenging everyday life. Ønsketransporten, Fontenehuset and PsykOpp all fall into this category, and I am proud that we are able to support the important work they do.”
Sval is also the main sponsor of 3-Sjøersløpet – a half-marathon that is organised in the Stavanger region every year, and which, among other things, aims to promote the joy of running and physical exercise.
Lyngø said: “There are many initiatives in the Stavanger region related to mental and physical health that deserve support. We hope that our contributions can help ensure that these important initiatives are continued.”
Ønsketransporten is a non-profit organisation whose purpose is to contribute to an increased quality of life and enjoyment of life for people with life limitations because of illness or injury, by fulfilling the desire for a specific experience or participation in meaningful contexts with medically and ethically sound transport and expertise.
Fontenehuset in Stavanger provides people with mental health challenges with a low threshold support scheme including job training, where the overall aim is to help people get back into work or start studies.
Psykiatrisk Opplysning (PsykOpp) is a foundation that aims to contribute to increased knowledge and openness about mental health. The foundation has three business areas: publishing, course and conference activities and information work. Examples are training of teachers and school employees, and the annual “Schizofrenidagene” in Stavanger – the largest mental health conference in the Nordic countries attracting around 5000 participants.
