The Hummingbird Project is a social enterprise that provides support to all members of the mental health family in a safe, warm-hearted space. The Project aims to support people who have suffered from or are suffering from mental ill health. They have a keen interest in recovery and working collectively within local communities, using a community development approach, to improve people’s mental health, life circumstances and reduce stigma.
Hummingbird has designed, developed and tested an early intervention recovery mentoring programme for people suffering with mental ill health, as well as delivering bespoke training to organisations staff and/or clients. They believe people with lived experience of mental ill health are the experts and aim to grow their enterprise by co-designing, developing and delivering professional qualification/s that will enable meaningful, well paid, non-tokenistic jobs for people marginalised by their mental health problems.
