I am Sarah Scott, Director of Public Health at Gloucestershire County Council. You will have probably seen (or heard) a fair amount from me recently, as I do my best to keep you up to date with the Covid-19 situation in the county.
To mark World Suicide Prevention Day, Gloucestershire Suicide Prevention Partnership is announcing the launch of GloW (Gloucestershire Wellbeing) Community Grants. Following funding from NHS England and NHS Improvement’s national Suicide Prevention Transformation Programme, the grants will invest in community based activities and projects that support individuals and groups in Gloucestershire to have better mental wellbeing.
The Covid-19 pandemic has posed many challenges and impacted services, but close partnership working has meant that as many vulnerable adults in Gloucestershire as possible, have still had the support they need.
