CELEBRATING MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS WEEK

This week we've been celebrating Mental Health Awareness Week by building our very own Wall of Inspiration, which we have been sharing across our social media channels.

Mental health is so important to us, and we know it's important to you. We want to share with you the work of Diana Award Holder Angel, who is a passionate mental health campaigner. As a mental health advocate she has completed over three hundred hours of volunteering to tackle mental health issues in her community.

A BIT OF INSPIRATION_

Earlier this month we celebrated Deaf Awareness Week and the amazing work of Diana Award Holder Danny, a passionate campaigner for the rights of other young people who are deaf or hard of hearing. He produces amazing creative videos that challenge the services currently provided for deaf people, and just last year he joined us to provide Anti-Bullying Ambassador training for deaf young people.
