Mental health centre helped to survive pandemic


Bridge the Gap, a centre dedicated to improving the mental health of children and parents, has successfully adapted its provision during Covid-19 with the help from the D2N2 Growth Hub. The organisation offers a range


of services from free support sessions in the community and an informative Facebook page, to low- cost resources, courses and workshops. With the help and advice of the D2N2 Growth Hub, it has since been able to access Government support and lottery funding to continue trading during the lockdown period. Jennifer Wyman, founder of


Bridge the Gap, said: “When Covid- 19 hit and we closed our doors, I was heartbroken. We were halfway


through running courses and programmes for children and had to abruptly stop. “We tried to bring the sessions


to a therapeutic close online but when that was completed, I felt exhausted and drained, like my brain had switched off. There was so much to think about but after getting in touch with Lisa and the Growth Hub, I spoke with two advisors and we talked through my options. “It helped me to plan, apply for


funding and get my brain switched back on. I've worked hard throughout lockdown and now have the team back together; I believe we have evolved and grown throughout the crisis - I can't thank the Hub enough.”


Young professionals network grows online


Generation Next is the Chamber’s network for young professionals and the next generation of business leaders aged 18 to 35. Over the past few months, it has been running an online events programme, covering topics such as online networking, coaching, business risk and career development. We checked in with Lucy Robinson, the Chamber’s director of resources, to see what’s in the pipeline for Generation Next: “Generation Next will continue to run its online schedule of events


in the coming months. We are also teaming up with the D2N2 Growth Hub and the Digital Growth Programme to run a series of webinars throughout August. “An exciting development is our new website. We are currently


working with Purpose Media to launch the website in September, which will be an interactive, content-rich, community-based site designed as a go-to place for the next generation of business leaders. “In the meantime, you can keep up with Generation Next by


interacting with us on social media or signing up to our newsletter. The team is looking forward to further support the next generation of business leaders, for what has been a tough time for many.”
