What impact a £2,000 grant made to Shaftesbury School…
HUGE thanks to Toby’s of Shaftesbury Fund (managed by the Dorset Community Foundation), for their grant of £2,000. It enabled us to expand our ‘Dorset Mind Your Head’ young people’s mental health programme to Shaftesbury School.
Upon evaluation, we’re delighted to report that 1,059 young people benefited from our Assemblies, Wellbeing Workshops and Wellbeing Mentor Programme. We wouldn’t have been able to run these activities without the assistance of this grant.
Three staff and three volunteers helped deliver of our support programme to help to educate and improve the mental health of students.
One student in particular was able to improve her confidence having experienced bullying. This person’s participation and engagement increased considerably whereby she could spot a potential safeguarding issue and act on it appropriately.
This is just one successful outcome of many. We’re delighted to announce an additional £2,000 has been awarded to continue this valuable work in Shaftesbury.
