Two funding opportunities from LSIS for 2011/12

1. Developing the Expert Learner: Active co-production of learning and the impact on mental health and wellbeing

LSIS will provide grants of £2500 to five providers to work with at least ten learners with mental health conditions and ten learners who have not declared mental health conditions.
