“We are well placed to partner with, and support other organisations to, develop delivery associated with mental health support provision, and we would seek to discuss ideas with other groups in the areas of Befriending, and Men’s Physical and Mental Health in particular.

We would also be happy to discuss how support for people with mental ill health can be best incorporated into any Transport projects.

We would like to see all the NCDP’s bids enhance the pathways and maximise the outcomes for people with mental ill health, so please can I urge anyone considering submitting a bid to contact me in confidence to discuss how we may contribute or be of assistance.”
