Pre-counselling programme funding boost

Southmead Project was given a much-needed boost in January, receiving vital funds to help deliver its pre-counselling programmes to those from challenging backgrounds.

Bristol Community Health and North Somerset Community Partnership (NSCP) awarded Southmead Project £3,880 as part of its bid to help support voluntary, community and social enterprise sector organisations.

Funding was awarded to a total of 12 projects.

“We know how hard local community-based organisations work to make a difference,” says Matthew Areskog, Bristol Community Health’s People and Communities Service Manager. “Motivating and supporting people to look after their own health is key for us. Our amazing community health staff, who really know what’s needed in the community, have voted on the final shortlist. We’re excited to hear about the progress these brilliant projects make this year.”

On behalf of Mike and the team at Southmead Project, we’d like to say a huge thank you to NSCP. To read more about NSCP, please visit their website.
