Fullscope – Supporting Wellbeing & Connecting Communities

Fullscope is a consortium of charities with a shared mission to improve the mental health and wellbeing of children and young people in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough. We know that these improvements will be better realised if we work together and that is why we are working as part of this group.

The overarching aim of Fullscope is to work collaboratively to enable communities to raise happier, healthier children who are resilient and empowered in their mental well-being. Fullscope believes that young people, their families and their communities need to be centred in the planning and designing of mental health services.

The seven partner organisations all have expertise in supporting the mental health and wellbeing of children and/or young people from 0-25, offering a wide range of services and approaches. As a group, the overall size, scope and reach represents a significant sector of the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough mental health system. The consortium builds strength and capacity, and facilitates joined up planning and working. In bringing organisations together, we can respond collectively in providing mental health services, influencing local policy and approaching funders.

Fullscope has three main ambitions:

Project Laboratory; to co-produce with children, young people, their families and communities, new projects to improve the mental wellbeing of more people through creative and integrated approaches.

System Change; to use our shared learning and understanding of creative and integrated models of work to influence change and improvement in the wider system of provision.

Clarity of Access and Offer; to make services more coherent and clearer for children and young people, their families and communities, with quick access to information support.

The Fullscope consortium consists of:
