Community Links launches new Innovation Programme
We are excited to launch our new Innovation Programme to support co-production and fresh thinking which will help to shape our services and better meet the needs of those they are designed to support.
Our mission is to pioneer life-changing mental health and wellbeing services therefore our Programme will include a small grants fund, known as the ‘Innovation Fund’ to develop new and creative ideas that will enhance our service provision. This could be anything from the introduction of a new peer support network to a weekly community pop up café, or drop in service…the opportunities are endless!
The fund is open to all Community Links staff and service users who will be supported to apply for funding up to the value of £3,000. To support the fund, we will also be holding quarterly Innovation Forums where service users, staff and volunteers can share new ideas and work together to innovate and co-produce new services, groups and activities that will help to improve the overall health and wellbeing of our service users.
Keep an eye on our social media accounts as we’ll share the date of the meetings and updates on the projects in the near future!
The first meeting date has now been released – 4th October, 11am – 1pm at our Clear office in Hudderfield.
