At the Hummingbird Project, we are very clear that we don’t want to all things to all people. We firmly believe that working in partnership with other community organisations, who are experts in other socio-economic factors that impact on individuals, to create wrap round solutions for those most vulnerable in our communities, is the most impactful, lean and sustainable answer. We want to provide high impact recovery and resilience solutions for those who are vulnerable to mental ill health for community organisations who identify this as an issue for their clients, but don’t have the skills or remit to provide this support. By working in collaboration with others we increase engagement, share knowledge, break down stigma and reduce siloed working within the CVSE sector, which can add strain to limited funding options.
Since the Hummingbird’s inception, we have enjoyed many community collaborations, most of which continue year on year, getting bigger and more impactful as we grow. Because all of our interventions, whether one to two or in a group setting, are all based on the 3U model principles of mental wellbeing being driven by an individual’s lived experience, we can adapt our delivery across most age ranges, educational or engagement needs or complexity of barriers. If you feel that your clients or community group members could benefit from or services, please contact us, we would love to create a tailored package of support that suits the needs of the communities you serve.
Current and previous community partners include:
