Mindset coach offering free mental wellbeing guidance  

This #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek we wanted to tell you about personal development leader, mindset and success coach, Lorna Dunning’s Facebook Group. 

The group has been launched by Lorna to provide free guidance videos and content to help people with mindset activities during the coronavirus outbreak. 

The group: Be The Change, offers regular Facebook videos with advice on staying in control and how you can spend your free time developing your mind. 

Having previously worked high in the corporate world, Lorna realised she could expect a better quality of life and turned to her role in helping people to live the life they deserve to live. 

Lorna spoke at the launch of this year’s Digital City’s SCALE programme and usually works on mentoring people through a 12-step personal development system. 

The group has grown quickly with some great feedback. You can find Lorna at Lorna Dunning Elite Personal Development on Facebook. 


North East Chamber Economic Survey 

This week the North East Chamber of Commerce has launched its North East England Economic Survey Q2 for its members. 

The Chamber will be donating £1 to Middlesbrough and Stockton Mind this #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek for each response it receives. 

The survey gives you the opportunity to have your say in for the region around business and how coronavirus has affected you. 

The feedback will be used to help the NE Chamber understand business needs and enables them to effectively lobby for the region’s businesses in the future. 

You can fill the survey out here. 


Vocabulary Ninja awarded funding  

Colehouse has this week announced that its new client, Vocabulary Ninja, has been granted NBSL funding and has submitted a Tees Valley Collaborative Networks Fund application to support pupils and schools across the Tees Valley and, eventually, the world.  

Set up by Assistant Headteacher, Andrew Jennings, Vocabulary Ninja provides downloadable resources and lesson plans for teachers across the UK. Andrew has also become a celebrated multi-book, best-selling educational author through world renowned publishing house Bloomsbury. The business is now hoping to grow into the homeschooling market during the coronavirus pandemic and beyond with six books launching next week.  

The funding will be used to help pupils to improve their skills in the Tees Valley and grow both nationally and globally. 

We wish you the best of luck.
