It wants to test which elements are practical and their impact on children’s progression in dance, teachers’ confidence and dance’s place within the curriculum.

These services include a kite-mark for poverty premium-free services, small business support for local people, a local neighbourhood fund and a data service that discounts without stigma.
Mum of three Sophia Parker believes that it takes a village to raise a child and set up Little Village in early 2016 to support to local families in need.

She would like to use her professional skills to evolve the Little Village offer, developing the model, expanding into other areas and growing its network of volunteers to create small, warm communities of families supporting each other.

It aims to better meet the social and emotional needs of young refugees and improve relationships between them and young people who have lived in Bolton all their lives, reducing potential tensions. Learning about the role of youth organisations in supporting the integration of young refugees and migrants will be shared widely in the youth and refugee/migrant sectors.

MEMap 02 Feb 2017
Based on his personal experience of CFS/ME and expertise as a software developer, Steven Shaw wants to create a website and linked app which enables people with CFS/ME to share the experience of peers who have achieved progress or success with improving their health. The app would model that success into a personalised tool allowing users to try change management themselves. The tech encapsulates good practice that patients have experienced via various coaching or therapeutic approaches and establishes a new role for tech, addressing the shortcomings patients have reported concerning standard treatments. The intent is a step-change in therapy tech.
Co-design for Mental Health 02 Feb 2017
Erika Renedo Illaregi set up Bidean Co-design as a CIC in early 2017. Her idea is to develop and deliver design workshops, during which mental health service users co-design products that help with their symptoms (for example, jewellery that is designed to prevent panic attacks and tablecloths that facilitate conversation during meals for those with communication difficulties). With PHF funding, she will test and evaluate the workshops and develop partnerships with mental health organisations with whom she could collaborate in future to replicate and scale-up the idea. During the course of her idea development period, Erika aims to exhibit the designs to the public as a way of tackling stigma associated with mental health and empowering her participants.
Reign Pioneers are a group of young women (19-25) from Manchester who are survivors of child sexual exploitation (CSE). They plan to provide front line staff (social workers, police, teachers etc.) with effective, honest, survivor-led training about the realities of CSE. Based on their own experiences, they know what questions staff should ask young survivors, how to build trust, what works and what doesn't. They will use their insider knowledge and experience, passion, and credibility with young people and within their communities, to ensure that survivors no longer feel alone or are made to feel ashamed - harbouring a dirty secret. They want to ensure that services are led and informed by young people who have lived through the experience of CSE.
