Loneliness and Isolation

Together Middlesbrough & Cleveland is working on a number of projects and activities in local communities to reduce loneliness and isolation.

Creative End of Lives

The Creative End of Lives Project will offer 100 local people the opportunity to attend one of 10, 4-week, creative programmes. It will be open to local adults (18+) who have a terminal illness or are experiencing end of life care (including palliative and holistic care); family and carers of adults or children who are supporting people at end of life; and those who work with them, either as paid staff or volunteers.

Mental Health Training

Brighter Lives Beyond Recovery was funded by the Benefact Trust’s Brighter Lives fund and was delivered in partnership with Middlesbrough & Stockton Mind.

TM&C provided accredited training and support for clergy, Christian charities, and other faith settings to access or deliver mental health first aid. We also worked with health and wellbeing groups and additional specialist services, across South Tees.
