A third clinical commissioning group (CCG) has launched a ‘Dragon’s Den’ style event to identify worthy mental health projects.
Durham Dales, Easington and Sedgefield (DDES) CCG is inviting voluntary and community organisations to compete for a Mental Health and Wellbeing Innovation grant worth £100,000.
The organisations have been asked to pitch their ideas to the CCG.
Annie Dolphin, lay chair of DDES CCG said: "There are many fantastic and imaginative voluntary and community organisations operating within our area and this is a wonderful opportunity for us to find out more about the difference they make to the lives of local people.
"It's also a good opportunity to find out more about our CCG and our role in planning and buying health services."
Organisations can bid for funds from £2,500 to £10,000 for their project to improve the mental health and wellbeing of individuals in the area.
