It is too late to book a place for this particular session, sorry about that.
The session will be an opportunity to hear about funding which is being made available for third sector partners to access in relation to Fife's new model for the Community Mental Health and Wellbeing Supports and Services Framework. Funding will be for two years and looks for organisations which will achieve the following aims:
To develop the capacity to support young people’s mental wellbeing through partnership with other locality groups.
To provide direct, targeted interventions and practices working with groups of YP with additional support needs to support mental wellbeing. It is anticipated that these targeted interventions and practices will take up the majority of the brief.
The vision for this framework is to offer equitable support and services across all seven localities of Fife. We aim to achieve this by taking a consistent approach to delivery with this brief with no more than one service provider for each locality. Organisations may apply for more than one locality. The localities of Fife are as follows: South-West Fife, Dunfermline, Cowdenbeath, Kirkcaldy, Glenrothes Levenmouth and North-East Fife.
Service providers are required to deliver on all outcomes and objectives provided in the brief, which will be shared with you.
Gail McLeod (Policy Officer for the Community Health and Wellbeing Supports and Services Framework) and Rona Weir (Education Manager) will share more information at the session - outlining outcomes and funding available in more detail. Gail and Rona will also give a sense of any future smaller-scale funding, which it is hoped might be designed in the year ahead to contribute to the wider framework.
This is primarily intended for those who attend Fife's Voluntary Sector Children's Services Forum. The Forum is open to any board member, staff member or volunteer working in the third sector with children and young people.
