Thrive is now a DfE quality assured provider of Designated Senior Mental Health Lead training for schools and colleges looking to embed a whole-setting approach to emotional health and wellbeing for all children and young people.
The DfE have now allocated all available grant funding for the 2021/22 financial year. However when reserved grants are not claimed due to changing circumstances these are being reallocated to schools on the waitlist.
We encourage schools to join the waitlist for the best chance of securing future funding as the DfE will confirm its position on 22/23 financial year grants this spring.
