I’m proud to announce my award from UnLtd, the UK’s foundation for social entrepreneurs. The award’s funding and tailored business support will significantly help me to develop my social enterprise.
A social enterprise is a business created to address a social or environmental issue. The issue I'm addressing is how to make mental health services accessible and engaging for children, young people, and families. I achieve this by providing training to health and social care professionals and organisations to work safely and competently with children and young people when using videogames therapeutically. This creates a new and innovative therapy pathway for children and young people in their comfort zone—videogames they know and love.
My Level 1 and Level 2 trainings in Using Minecraft as a Therapeutic Tool are open for enrollment here: https://elliefinch.thinkific.com/
