Cinnamon Project Lab Finalists 2019

Emerge Advocacy

Emerge enables trained, Christian volunteers to support young people attending Accident and Emergency departments as a result of self-harm or attempted suicide.

Without the time constraints or targets that restrict so many healthcare professionals, Emerge volunteers can build relationships with vulnerable young people, speak words of hope into their lives, and encourage them to engage with the care and support on offer.

Flourish

Flourish supports the mental wellbeing of girls between the ages of 11-18 through a group course that’s delivered in schools and churches.

Projects work closely with local schools to support girls who display issues such as anxiety, self-harm, lack of school engagement and friendship problems or social isolation. Through an eight-week course, Flourish creates a safe space where girls are empowered with tools to build resilience and support each other.

Life Guards Healthy Hearts

Life Guards Healthy Hearts teaches children and young people how to look after their physical, mental and spiritual health.

Through an informative and practical eight-week programme, young people learn about the impact of stress on their physical and mental wellbeing and how to find healthy ways of dealing with it.

Mum2Mum

Mum2Mum helps local churches to support vulnerable young mums in their community by linking mums with trained volunteer befrienders.

The initiative aims to tackle issues of isolation, loneliness and poor mental health that are faced by young parents. The project also helps young mums to access the wider range of support and services they and their babies need, but may be reluctant to access for a range of reasons.

Truth Be Told

Truth Be Told bridges the gap between generations as 0-4’s, their parents and residents of dementia care homes enjoy storytelling, singing songs and being community together. NICE guidelines suggest that intergenerational activities be offered to promote cognition, independence and wellbeing for older adults and those living with dementia. Truth Be Told does exactly that by providing a joy-filled, creative and responsive experience for everyone, helping to build bonds and reduce loneliness.
