TEWV Innovation Fund

We are delighted to launch a new round of our grants programme – TEWV Innovation Fund.
Funded by Tees, Esk and Wear Valley NHS Foundation Trust and managed by Your Consortium, the aim of this programme is to stimulate innovative projects in York and Selby districts that support individuals experiencing issues related to mental health and learning disabilities. Projects should support recovery from health-related conditions and contribute to the reduction in pressure on mental health system resources.
Grants of between £5k and £10k are available to organisations based within the TEWV catchment area – predominantly in York and Selby.
An application form for the Round 2 Fund is available in MS Word format here…
A copy of the Application Guidance Document is available in PDF format here…
Applications need to be submitted to us in hard copy format with all supporting documentation by 2pm on Friday the 6th April 2018.

Positive Mental Health Through Gardening
Friends of St Nicholas Fields
Friends of St Nicholas Fields – known by most as St Nicks – has been working with two York based mental health support units, encouraging those who attend to get involved in gardening.  The round 1 programme has proven to be very successful and participants have been involved in the planning and practical work, improving the environment and developing natural spaces on site.
We visited both projects over the summer and have recently uploaded a short video about the great work they’ve been undertaking.  You can see it here…



Enhancing Mental Well Being and Encouraging Positive Mental Health
Selby Community Furniture Store


The Community Furniture Store in Selby is one of the North Yorkshire Delivery Partners involved in the TEWV Innovation Fund.  As part of the round 1 programme they offered a six week training and development session to help participants with their well being and mental health.  The sessions were practical, social and tailored to the needs of each participant.
Donated furniture is renovated, up valued and then sold on through the community shop.
We recently visited the project and put a short video featuring Cooky, Jenny and Jack and you can see it here…
