ACV Foundation CIC’s The Power of YOU Workshops have now received funding from the Coronavirus Community Support Fund, distributed by the National Lottery Community Fund.

This means we can deliver the community funded Workshops to many, many more people in the community.

Created and facilitated by myself ( Sharon Bull ), I use my own life experiences to guide and empower  attendees through the life-changing exercises.   To find out more 

Having received funding in 2019 from Foundation Derbyshire, these workshop sessions have already proved a huge success. ACV Foundation initially held the workshop at Derby Women’s Centre, concluding online during the Coronavirus lock-down. Please follow link for further details and a selection of testimonials from the attendees.  

The nucleus of The Power of YOU community funded Workshops is an interactive journal. The journal helps attendees to recognise their fears and what is holding them back. Its 21 easy step by step exercises also assists them in realising their true potential.

“Writing was one of several positive changes that aided my personal transformation and recovery from 30 years struggling with mental health issues.”

CV19 has brought about an increase in low self-esteem and mental health issues due to numerous reasons. Isolation and loneliness, domestic abuse, job loss, financial worries and even the death of a loved one to the virus. The Coronavirus Community Support Fund has enabled ACV Foundation CIC to continue supporting people through these difficult times. The workshops also allow people to come  together, while encouraging good mental health and well-being.

A huge thank you to the Government for making this possible, and to graphic designer Julie Waring for swiftly pulling together the interactive journal and more.
