Portland College is a charity that since 1949 has been reaching out to vulnerable young people who have severe disabilities and life-limiting health concerns.  They seek to deliver health and wellbeing transformational change for their learners and help the wider community.  The application they made to ACT was for funding towards equipment for their Recovery College project - an integrated care and coordinated approach for young adults who have a mental health challenge in order to facilitate long-term change.  Portland College will be working with 250 young people to identify their individual needs together with the skills and abilities they have and to agree a plan on the way forward for them.  They will work closely with Nottingham Healthcare Trust delivering coping strategies, workshops on health, wellbeing and employment, coping strategies and support towards long-term employment opportunities.  ACT were pleased to be able to pledge £2,500 towards their equipment needs.
