The Voluntary and Community Sector (VCS)

Cernis is a founder member of BOND – Better Outcomes, New Delivery.


BOND is a two year initiative funded by the Department for Education (DfE) in England.   We are a consortium of eight member organisations, the lead organisation being YoungMinds.

BOND’s mission is to increase the capacity of the VCS to provide early intervention mental health services to children and young people.

Within the BOND programme Cernis is leading on Values based workforce planning for the sector.

Previously in BOND we produced the Learning from Practice report and co-hosted the learning events that kicked off the project in 2012. We have led one of the five pilot sites – in Knowsley, Sefton and Liverpool and specialist workstreams for other pilots in Kingston and South Cambridgeshire.
