Together We CIC will be able to expand their services in the Eden area, thanks to Community Investment Funding provided by the Frieda Scott Charitable Trust, Cumbria Community Foundation, and Westmorland and Furness Council.

This funding has allowed Together We CIC to offer much-needed mental health support at the former Newton Rigg College.

Without this funding, a significant number of people in the Eden area would have been left without access to vital mental health services.

The project provided by Together We CIC aims to improve the mental health and wellbeing of individuals through the implementation of both 1:1 sessions and group work.

The project's main objective is to address the inequalities in mental health provision for those who do not have access to statutory services or do not seek help from them.

Various interventions are offered, including talking therapy, emotional regulation strategies, listening services, and mental health learning.

Mark Clamp, the Clinical Lead and Talk Service Manager of Together We CIC, said: “We are incredibly grateful to Frieda Scott Charitable Trust, Cumbria Community Foundation and Westmorland and Furness Council for helping us to give people in the Eden area the opportunity to improve their mental health and their overall wellbeing."
