Foundation Derbyshire Rolls Royce Fund

For the last six years the Foundation Derbyshire Rolls-Royce Fund has targeted its grant making towards different aspects of mental health services for young people. The Fund has recognised national concerns and has echoed the dialogue around the insufficient levels of care available.

Sarah Stainthorpe says: “As we move through 2021 and into 2022 this theme will remain the focus of the Fund. We are looking to fund programmes and activities that focus on resilience, mindfulness, strategies for spotting and tackling mental health issues, exercise and techniques for better mental health. Activities could include: Access to counselling, workshops / programmes around awareness, self-help / self-care techniques or mental health training for staff, parents and volunteers working with young people. We are looking for groups and projects that already have experience of delivering in this field or who will be using professional experienced / qualified workers to implement the project where appropriate.”
