More funding allows Element to continue to launch new social action projects

South Yorkshire's Community Foundation has been a longstanding funder and supporter of Element Society’s projects since our inception back in 2013.

In the last 12 months, we have been granted funding to deliver some amazing projects including Blue Dot – a campaign by young people for young people that combats the stereotyping of mental health and helps people be better friends, Girls Collective – a Muslim girl’s empowerment project working with year 10 and 11 Muslim students from throughout Sheffield, and the CSE Red Light Project – a peer mentoring service and awareness-raising groups for young people to discuss and highlight Child Sexual Exploitation. The programme aims to work with 500 young people and offer training for 10 teachers.

As well as helping young people, this funding also helps Element to grow as an organisation, as CEO Chris says:

The range of funding we've received from South Yorkshire's Community Foundation has allowed us to significantly diversify the range of projects we run, which is a big help towards us achieving our ongoing goals as an organisation.
