CEO News

August has meant some time to look at our ‘house’ or what the team call, ‘getting our house in order’. This means that before we can start to think about new and exciting things or projects, we need to look at strengthening and supporting our existing team and projects.

 

We are updating all our internal policies and processes to make sure that we are robust enough and the staff have practices in place that support them so we can feel ready to grow.

 

This also means we’ve starting to make some plans for reviewing and looking at locality meetings, our peer team, our membership – in essence all that makes CAPITAL, CAPITAL!

 

This is all part of our start to review and rethink what we currently do, and prepare ourselves so we are ready to think about the future and the bigger picture. There will be much more to follow in the next few weeks so do look out for more soon. Meantime, if you have any questions or ideas for us, please contact me: duncan.marshall@capitalproject.org or speak to a member of the team.

 

Our new website is really starting to look pretty fab and colourful. The site now includes the recent launch of the new SCALE network and an ongoing feature ‘CAPITAL stories’ – our CAPITAL stories of lived experience. Do check it out: www.capitalproject.org

 

We’re always keen to hear from you if you want to get more involved………. so please do get in touch!

Lived Experience Voices Required!

The Lived Experience Training Task and Finish Group has been set up to put together some fantastic workshops that we can offer to local business’, groups and charities to help them gain a better understanding of mental health. The work group is now up and running and we are meeting online every other Tuesday. We would love to have more of you join us as the more the merrier. There are many ways you can get involved; we have a job for everyone!

 

If you are interested– See the Diary of Events for dates and times and/or email helen.hayward@capitalproject.org for a link to the next session.

 

Unfortunately due to a clash in the diary, I have had to change our second September session to the Wednesday. I hope that does not cause too much disruption in your week. Please see Diary of Events for more information. Kindest regards, Helen

Learning and Development

This month we will be running 2 face to face information sessions for all our new members. The first session is an opportunity for us all to get to know each other and find out about the work that CAPITAL does as a service user led mental health charity. The second information session covers what opportunities are available to members, including lots of exciting voluntary roles. IF you are new to CAPITAL, we would love to have you join us and of course, longer serving members are also welcome too. Everyone is welcome! Please see the Diary of Events for dates and times.

Thank you for taking the time to read our newsletter, 
Your CAPITAL Team.
