Deadline extended to Monday 16 October

The Change Minds Partnership (Restoration Trust with Norfolk Record Office) wishes to commission a Business Planner to develop a Business Plan for national roll out of the Change Minds programme.

This is a great opportunity to come and work with us and our partners the Norfolk Record Office to plan the future of our fascinating Change Minds mental health and archives project.

Change Minds reduces social exclusion by supporting people living with mental health problems to engage with heritage and high-quality creative experiences, but it does more than this.  Openness, encouragement, and inclusion are key to how the project works and past projects show that lasting change can occur within a carefully conducted group through sustained and regular involvement. The project encourages opportunities for participants to keep in touch between workshops and after the project has finished.  Careful thought is given to the progression for participants, this can include volunteering and participation opportunities offered by all partners.

ā€œIā€™d recommend [Change Minds] to people who are interested in history archives and that kind of research, as well as people who are interested in understanding mental wellness itself and historical context on that. It has been interesting looking at these themes being come out from people from very different backgrounds.ā€ (Change Minds Participant).
