As part of the Peterborough Exemplar, in 2021 the How Are You (H.A.Y.) team launched the CELEBRATE (Community Expertise Leading to Eradicating Barriers and Realising Access. Taking care of Everyone) project. This delivered the CELEBRATE fund, which brought £100k investment to support minority ethnic groups in Peterborough to improve access to mental health care for those experiencing severe mental illness within their communities, and five new Specialist Digital and Community Engagement roles within the H.A.Y. team.
