The Transcend project is delighted to have reached the semi-finals of The National Lottery Awards. The Awards are an annual search to find the UK’s favourite Lottery-funded projects, and they aim to celebrate and recognise the difference that those projects have made to people, places and communities all across the UK. Transcend is competing against nine other projects for the title of Best Health Project (out of five hundred other projects!).
By the end of July, the project will have trained 37 people with personal experience of mental health issues to become peer mentors (our three year target was 16-24!) and we’ve also smashed our three year training target by hundreds, reducing stigma and increasing awareness of recovery in Swansea.

This will be a fantastic opportunity to have Swansea, mental health, recovery and a service user led project at the front of a huge national campaign. If the project is successful, we will appear on BBC1 and also get a cash prize which can contribute to furthering the project’s work. It will be a great acknowledgement of the mentor’s hard work across Swansea.

WE NEED YOUR HELP – EVERY VOTE COUNTS!
