We are delighted to be working with North of Tyne Combined Authority (NTCA) for our Melva programme 2023-24.

Both Mortal Fools and NTCA are committed to finding innovative ways to tackle the national mental health crisis amongst children and young people, including practical support for teachers.

The funding support NTCA have provided enables us to make the Melva programme available free of charge to 50 schools in Newcastle, North Tyneside and Northumberland – putting these important resources in the hands of those who need them the most.
