Volunteering - Social Action
Head Positive is a new social action programme for young people based in Coventry.
With an emphasis on engaging underrepresented groups, including those living in the most deprived inner-city wards, the programme focuses on the theme of improving mental health and wellbeing.
Although we would like to engage all young people in the programme, there is a particular focus on those who are either in care, or are newly arrived to the country.
The programme concentrates on the creation of volunteering opportunities, recruitment, training, and development of community based projects for young people aged 10 to 18.
This grant was funded through Comic Relief and the Big Lottery Fund, as part of the #iwill fund, an initiative of the Big Lottery Fund, the Department for Culture, Media and Sport and Step up to Serve, funded by the Big Lottery Fund and the Cabinet Office.
