Survivors Time to Change Champions
Thanks to North Yorkshire County Council (Public Health), Scarborough Survivors is able to distribute small grants (up to £500) to help people across North Yorkshire with experience of mental illness to hold conversations about mental health. The project is based on national Time to Change (www.time-to-change.org.uk), which promotes social contact as a way to tackle the stigma associated with mental health issues.
It is easy to apply and we aim to respond with the outcome within 6 weeks of receiving an application. Applications are assessed by a panel of experts by experience (of mental illness) using a scoring system. Successful applicants will be asked to complete a feedback form after the event so that we can monitor the number of conversations that take place (our aim is to reach over 2000 across the county).
Please note: the fundable area for this project does not include the city of York.
