Children’s charity Mortal Fools, believe businesses must go further and faster, to build a better world for the future and unlock crucial, urgent support for children and young people in our communities.
With Public Health England estimating 1/6 children have a diagnosable mental health condition, it has never been more important to find new ways to support young people; MELVA is an award-winning practical, revolutionary way to do just that and businesses and/or leaders can gift the full MELVA digital package to a setting of their choice.
MELVA is an innovative, creative, impactful way for organisations and leaders to support children aged 7—11yrs old and a clear way to achieve ESG/CSR objectives; it’s a very tangible, measurable way to demonstrate an investment in children’s wellbeing and communities, development of foundational life skills and their futures.
What is Melva?
MELVA is a creative digital package supporting KS2 children to talk openly about and better understand their mental health, emotions, and wellbeing. Through MELVA, settings gain access to an online portal, toolbox of resources and suggested framework of delivery, an episodic film, lesson plans, choose your own adventure game, interactive activity booklets and a user guide, full of guidance developed in consultation with teachers. Through MELVA’s structured programme, educators are empowered to hold space effectively and safely for open and positive wellbeing conversations, and it supports RSHE curriculum delivery in a high impact way.
Focusing on early intervention, this digital programme scaffolds the development of resilience pathways, positive emotional responses and cultivates a shared understanding of what it means to look after yourself and others.
Gift Melva to a setting of your choice
Organisations and leaders can join the likes of Muckle & Ryder Architecture in gifting the Melva digital programme to a primary school setting of their choice.
For settings, the cost of the programme can be prohibitive in the contemporary landscape of ever-changing budgets, sector cuts alongside increasing children’s needs and worsening mental health.
When gifting a Melva package, you are investing in a high impact, wellbeing intervention, that will support children at a developmentally critical age, alongside scaffolding increased resilience and emotional intelligence, so they can thrive as healthy, happy teens and adults (i.e. the future workforce!)
You can gift Melva with a setting in mind or Team Mortal Fools can work with you to identify a setting to gift to - we are open to larger scale gifting and multi-purchases. By gifting MELVA and you can help Mortal Fools, reach more children and young people.
We also have options for organisations to utilize Melva in various forms to benefit the families of their employees.
