Last year, DH provided HEE with an Innovation Fund for organisations to implement workforce transformation projects that will improve mental health in Children and Young People. Following a submission and review process, £3.2m was allocated in grants to 33 organisations.

The Department of Health and Health Education England are repeating the process for 2017/18 and £1-2m from DH will be made available to carry out this project.

It has been agreed that the second round of innovation funding will be restricted to ‘vulnerable groups’ within C&YP and as a result the initiative has been renamed - ‘Children & Young Peoples’ Education and Training Fund –Vulnerable Groups.’ to give a true reflection of the aim of this scheme.

A webpage has been created for this activity which will be updated regularly with information regarding this exercise and can be viewed here: http://bit.ly/cypmhfund
