Below are some examples of how previous awardees of the QBP public engagement seed fund have used the funding to create some excellent public engagement activities.
MILESTONE is a project that aims to understand and improve transition of care from child to adult mental health services for young people across different healthcare systems in Europe. The funds awarded were used to run three ‘Ideas Cafes’, two hour interactive workshops, with a wide range of different stakeholders including mental health practitioners, service commissioners, young people and parents and carers.
The Red Tent Project is a menstruation and sustainability awareness project designed and run by PhD student Rebecca Evans. Its aim is to increase awareness about the challenges faced by girls globally in managing their menarche and menstruation, and to promote discourse on the issue with the goal of listening to girls’ needs and trying to find sustainable solutions.
