One to One Project delighted to be awarded grant by Dong Energy UK
August 21, 2017
The One to One Project team were absolutely delighted to be successful in the first round of applications to the East Coast Community Fund; a new Fund made available by Dong Energy UK to support coastal communities within the vicinity of its Hornsea and Race Bank Offshore Wind Farm developments, off the Yorkshire, Lincolnshire and North Norfolk Coast.
The grant, totaling £21,186, will part fund the post of an Assistant Project Manager over a period of two years, to develop our outreach mentoring support across the community. The mentoring service aims to reach some of the most isolated individuals throughout our community, whose experiences of mental health difficulties are often exacerbated by their rural location making it incredibly difficult to access central services. Often these individuals face insurmountable challenges that means they receive little or no support at all if services do not reach out to them in their home or local community. Our support can often feel like a lifeline for those who have had to cope alone with mental health difficulties for many years.
Many thanks to Dong Energy for awarding us this grant through their East Coast Community Fund.
