Voluntary sector mapping for Headstart

Voluntary sector mapping for Headstart


Posted: 9th August2018 by Stronger Kent Communities

As part of Stronger Kent Communities role on the Headstart board we have been asked to find out about any groups, forums or networking events which Headstart could use as a way of reaching out to the voluntary sector to facilitate some joint working and raise awareness of the programme. Specifically Headstart is looking for either youth groups generally who work with young people or those with an interest in supporting those with mental health issues. If any of you know of any means as to how they can reach voluntary groups or present to them in person please can you send us details.

If you know of any groups in your areas that can be approached that would be really helpful or any CVS bodies who may put on networking events other than our own.

Headstart itself is a programme which is run by KCC but funded by Big Lottery to build resilience in 10 – 16 year olds so that their mental health and wellbeing is looked after and does not lead to them entering the NHS mental health system. More details can be found at
