What we fund

Our funding is delivering activities for young people experiencing mental health difficulties.

Why we work with them

We were excited to be able to support this unusual programme, combining arts with story telling and autobiography as a means of both expressing difficult emotions and understanding them better.

Young people together

‘I find it hard to open up about the specific traumas that led me to feeling the way I do, but when I visualised my journey in comic and illustrative form, it helped me to see that it really is getting better and I have come so far in my mental health journey!’
