Our Contribution To Coronavirus
The Priest Foundation has allocated £1000.00 of our funds to the current crisis. South East and Central Essex Mind, who are based in Southchurch road have applied to the Essex Coronavirus response and recovery programme funding for technology equipment in order to produce training programmes for remote mental health support.
They lack the IT, camera and recording equipment to do this and estimate that this would be between £8,000.00 – £10,000.00. This amount also includes paying trainers who they already use (they have a bank of 15 – 20 experienced freelance staff) who will be developing the programme which they optimistically say could be ready for testing in 6 weeks.
