Welcome to the Adult Education Mental Health Research project page for Action Learning for Living (ALL). WEA in Nottingham have been part of the project since April 2015 leading two pilots: True Colours and Action Learning for Living (ALL) We are working with DfE in the academic year 2016-17, using the ALL project model, to contribute research data to inform the final report.

On the weekly Zoom Meeting I asked about how to make our Annual Report available on the MHFE site.
Whilst I am looking at a means to produce a fully accessible pdf version I thought I would share a link here to see whether the National Pilot Comminity feel its worthwhile sharing or if it is too long / boring.
We are intending to use it a briefing tool for customers, press and partners, so it is written assuming the reader has no prior knowledge of the National Pilot.
I would welcome any comments feedback or ideas for improvement!
Peer Support Groups have been an excellent way to create sustainable development of our pilot funding as they have resulted in 4 self supporting groups being created across Somerset. The 5th group starts tomorrow in Taunton and has empowered individuals to meet and support each others recovery on a regular basis. A good example is one individual was experiencing anxiety and refused to access the local supermarket so the group decided to go with her. She now has developed enough confidence to access the supermarket herself!

Well it's that time of year again so with that in mind I thought it would be a good time to give you all a quick update as to our progress. We certainly have been busy. We recently had a really successful Information Day Which was attended by a number of our peer navigator volunteers, along with representatives from the Roberts centre who have range of services offering support and assistance to people with mental health issues.

We put a course together as a result of a similar thing to the "Pop-up" cafe that I saw on one of the other blogs where we organised 2 days of 1:1's with an emplyment partner who referred their ESA clients. We also consulted learners about the sort of things they were interested in.
‘Equality’ is an interesting term and it means different things to different people. It is often used in the ‘Equality and Diversity’ context. In which case, equality is not about treating everyone the same, but about putting people in a position where they have the same opportunities. However, a quick search of the word in a dictionary suggests ‘a state of being equal’ and uses language such as fairness, equitability, uniformity and even-handedness. I have been reflecting about what equality means for partnership working.
