Centre 33 pleased to announce the launch of the Fullscope Consortium
Fullscope launched to support the positive mental health and wellbeing of children and young people in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.
Seven leading charities that support the mental wellbeing of children and/or young people in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough are uniting to launch Fullscope. The consortium are:
This is a 3-year programme that will improve provision, establish clearer opportunity pathways, and have national significance in influencing the sector as a whole.
Fullscope comes at a time when greater attention is being paid to the prevention of mental ill health, as well as treatment. Supporting children and young people is key to this; with 50% of mental health problems being established by the age of 14 and 75% by age 24. There are an estimated 13,600 children and young people aged 0-16 in Cambridgeshire with a diagnosable mental health problem and mental ill health prevalence being highest in the 16 to 25 age group.
Fullscope will champion, collaborate with, and be inspired by the voices of children and young people, taking their lead in order to deliver its aims. Supported by the National Lottery Community Fund, with development support from Arm Limited and Norfolk & Norwich Festival Bridge, Fullscope presents the first consortium of its kind in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.
The seven organisations all have expertise in providing services to support the mental health of children and/or young people from 0-25, with a shared ambition to support happier and healthier individuals and communities, working towards a future without mental ill health. Fullscope is based on collaboration – with children, young people, families, statutory and community organisations, and education settings – transforming the world children and young people inhabit.
Elly De Decker, Senior Head of Regional Funding at The National Lottery Community Fund, said;
“We are delighted to fund the Fullscope Partnership, a collaboration of local organisations with the shared mission of improving the mental health and wellbeing of young people in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough. Thanks to National Lottery players, the organisations involved will draw on their expertise to deliver a local service that focuses on early intervention and recovery, with the aim to empowering local communities to thrive.”
