CIE provides tailor made programmes and project management that provide innovative solutions to a range of community and social inclusion issues
e.g. increasing service access to a more diverse range of communities; understanding demographic changes and locality based changes in community needs and aspirations; developing frameworks for action and innovation in equality and human rights.

Bipolar UK is a small national charity dedicated to supporting individuals with the much misunderstood condition of bipolar, their families and carers.
Established in 1983 by service users to combat the lack of dedicated services, service user participation is core to everything we do.
We provide support services for individuals affected by bipolar including a national network over 120 self help groups, a moderated 24/7 web-based peer support forum, self management, one-to-one & telephone mentoring and a youth (18 to 25 years of age) service.
We produce information and guidance publications, work in partnership with research organisations and seek to combat the stigma and discrimination.
We reached out and supported 65,000 individuals affected by bipolar during the past year and demand for our services is rising at an unprecedented pace.
NSUN network for mental health is the only England-wide charity led by, and for, people with experience of psychological distress.
We link service-users to each other and to carers, health professionals, commissioners and policy makers in order to ensure that people have the greatest possible influence over the services they use and their own lives.
Nationally NSUN sits on the Department of Health Ministerial Advisory Group on the Mental Health Strategy and many other influential bodies.

Rethink Mental Illness is a charity that believes a better life is possible for millions of people affected by mental illness.
40 years ago, one man bravely spoke about his family’s experiences of mental illness in a letter to the Times and in the process brought together hundreds to talk about their experiences of mental illness and support each other.
Today we directly support almost 60,000 people every year across England to get through crises, to live independently and to realise they are not alone.
Our website and helplines give information and advice to 500,000 more and we change policy for millions.
We carry out research to make sure we really deliver results for people, young or old.
Our services, support groups, and members cover every county in England, giving us local insight and helping us spread innovations nationally.
All our work is governed by people who have lived through mental illness.
