Better Together 

A collaboration project to support those with mental health conditions has been awarded funding by the Big Lottery’s Reaching Communities Fund.The ‘Better Together’ project is a collaboration of three Lincoln charities: Development Plus, Abbey Access Training and Green Synergy.

The projects focus is to help people overcome barriers and move forward in their lives.

CEO of Development Plus, Lynsey Collinson, said: ” It will support, enable and empower people who are experiencing mental health conditions to come together to improve their personal health and well-being.”

She added: “The project will fulfil this aim by offering participants a tailor made, supportive, flexible programme of mentoring, coaching, therapeutic activities, volunteering, training, work experience and support into employment.”

Although the three charities have worked together in the past, this is the first time they have been funded collectively.
