‘Sharp Response’ provides a daily mobile crisis outreach service targeted to those alcohol/drug users deemed to be at highest risk.

We propose to purchase and kit-out an electric vehicle as an interactive mobile Climate Change exhibit, along with graphics to explain the benefits of switching to electric and illustrate the reduction in our carbon footprint.

Funding received:

£33,565

Our people carrier transports our service users to the groups and activities which we provide – particularly the children and young people of our Young People’s Sensory Service (YPSS).

£11,000
