As the project moves into its second year Sefanit Inquai has started as the new Mental Wellbeing Worker. The core project objectives continue to be
- Increase mental wellbeing awareness and break down barriers
- Assist with early intervention and prevention
- Provide signposting and advocate for support services
There are now two main parts of the project
- A village Mental Wellbeing Worker focusing but not solely on children, young people and families with increased personal role support and a partnership with a counselling provider when required for those in need
- Broader community involvement to increase support to work and more generally to residents.
The support of the project funders in helping make the project happen is much appreciated and the funders include Histon & Impington Parish Council, Histon & Impington Feast, Friends of the Rec, Poor’s Land Charity, SCDC, The Batterson-Chivers Foundation, Comic Relief through CCF and St Andrews Church Histon.
