Our Impact

The Hummingbird Project works best in partnership with others and when we drop into projects bringing high impact sustained outcomes. Some of the work we have undertaken recently includes…

Not content with helping NHSCT primary care patients achieve long-term positive changes in their lives we have also trained health service staff to manage their emotional health.

In partnership with Big Telly Theatre Company and funded by the Arts Council NI and PHA, we worked with a group of teenagers excluded from mainstream education to improve their resilience.

We worked with young adults with additional learning needs to prove they can also determine their own resilience and emotional health.

Local businesses benefitted from taster sessions demonstrating the need for emotional health training in the private sector. We also teamed up with BITC to deliver Link & Learn sessions to corporates.

CVSE sector training – our own sector deals with some of the most vulnerable people in society and staff also benefitted from resilience skills.

The Into Tomorrow Project funded by PwC continues to remove the most vulnerable young adults from factors contributing to suicide and lifting them out of mental ill health.
