New Investment for the Inside Out Project
Inside Out, a project that helps people who are not working and who have been adversely affected by the Covid-19 restrictions, is expanding its reach thanks to investment from the European Social Fund.
Led by local charity CLEAR, Inside Out reaches out to people whose mental health and emotional wellbeing has taken a knock during the pandemic and helps them to get back on track and into training and work. The project started in West Cornwall in March 2021 and now covers communities in the Camborne-Pool-Redruth, Falmouth-Penryn and Truro areas.
Jen joined Inside Out in West Cornwall in April and has recently started work. Her message for others is: “Don’t hesitate to join up! The wellbeing support and social interaction is a great way to get your confidence back and take the next step, wherever that may be.”
Carolyn Webster, Chief Executive of CLEAR, said: “The expansion of Inside Out comes just at the right time as communities look to safely move on from the pandemic. Inside Out provides a unique mix of trauma-informed wellbeing approaches alongside practical, fun community-based activities, all designed to rebuild emotional resilience, social connection and skills.”
Katy Hutchinson, from Inside Out delivery partner CHAOS said: “The CHAOS group is proud to be part of this great project and will be responsible for engaging with potential participants in the community and helping them to make the most of what Inside Out can offer. We look forward to working with CLEAR, Rebuild South West and Active Plus in this exciting project”
