Head for Work Breakfast Event

We are delighted that our Head for Work project has been awarded three further years of funding by the Big Lottery Fund, taking it through to 2020. To celebrate and reflect on the last three years, we are hosting a Breakfast Event to review and acknowledge this great achievement.

The event will take place on Thursday 27th April from 9am to 11:30am, at the University of Westminster, 35 Marylebone Road, London, NW1 5LS. The schedule will be as follows:

9:00 – Networking Breakfast

9:45-10:45 – Presentation of Project Achievements

10:45-11:15 – Future Training and Project Plan

11:15-11:30 – Awards and Certificates

Please register your attendance here via Eventbrite.

The Head for Work project aims to increase access to accredited training and employment opportunities for long-term unemployed Harrow residents experiencing mental health problems. Participants are given training and subsequently employed to run workshops that focus on tackling mental health stigma in the workplace.

The Head for Work project was hugely successful over the duration of its last Big Lottery Fund grant, achieving all its targets by accrediting over 40 people with the University of Middlesex as Mental Health Awareness Trainers and increasing mental health awareness for 1,000 employees across public, charity and private sectors.
