Project Receives Support from Norfolk Community Foundation
August 19, 2016
Staff at the One to One Project were delighted to be awarded £5,000 from the Norfolk Community Foundation, Mental Health and Wellbeing Fund, following an application for funds to support the expansion of the mentoring and group work services.
Mentoring is a crucial aspect of the mental health support that takes place at the Project, meeting clients in their own homes or a suitable space within their local community to work towards achieving a set of goals. It reaches those individuals who are living in isolation or who face emotional or practical barriers to accessing support, who would otherwise be unable to access the help they need.

The grant will also be used to develop group work services, which provide the opportunity for individuals to come together in small groups, offering peer support. These are facilitated by two therapeutic group workers and focus on particular issues, such as Improving Self Confidence, Conquering Anxiety and Anger Management.

We are delighted to receive support and recognition of our work from the Norfolk Community Foundation and look forward to sharing our success in using this generous grant.
