A major new partnership between Depaul UK and the CareTech Foundation will provide more than £23,000 to transform the lives of homless young people in the North East. The organisations will work together to improve the mental health and wellbeing of young people living in Depaul’s supported accommodation across the region.

Part of the new grant will fund a specialist mental health worker who will be focused on helping young people grow their personal confidence and ability to cope. Through a number of workshops and activities, the programme will build resilience and offer techniques for maintaining positive wellbeing and mental health.
