Education and training fund
Improving the mental health well-being of young people.
2017/18 Education and Training Fund – Vulnerable Groups
Following the success of the projects funded in 2015/16, we have run a second procurement exercise to commission providers to deliver initiatives that support workforce transformation, development and training that aim to improve mental health outcomes for vulnerable children and young people.
After evaluating 73 bids from a wide range of organisations 26 NHS trusts, clinical commissioning groups, charities and local authorities were awarded funds ranging from £34,000 to £250,000.
Professor Lisa Bayliss-Pratt, Director of Nursing and Deputy Director of Education and Quality:
“We know that a workforce with the right skills and values is vital if we are to protect the most vulnerable in society. By funding workforce education and training this initiative will help organisations develop their teams to meet local demand and ensure that vulnerable children and young people receive the mental health support that they need."
