Innovating Minds CIC
Innovating Minds was set up in 2016 to provide accessible psychological support for disadvantaged young people within the school environment. It focuses on children aged 11-16, when psychological intervention can be most beneficial. Innovating Minds also works with young people who have experienced domestic abuse or trauma. Its recent impact report showed that high risk behaviour (e.g. assault, use of a weapon) decreased by 90% in the schools it worked with. The Fore’s grant will fund staff capacity that will enable Innovating Minds to double the number of schools it works with, significantly increasing its financial sustainability.
