Fundraising for our inaugural Participants Council meeting

Thanks to the Landmark Trust‘s 50 for Free scheme, we’ve been given New Inn as our home from home.

This two-day event at New Inn will be our first ever Participants Council, an opportunity for people from all our projects to share stories and ideas, and make decisions about our strategy.

The cost of transport is the biggest block to people joining our projects, adding to loneliness and worsening mental health. Members of our Participants Council are all on low income and are travelling from rural Norfolk, Suffolk and Wiltshire.

This will be a great way to create something special, stay in a fabulous historic building, meet old friends and make new ones.

Help make it an experience to remember!

Student software developers mentored by volunteers from Google have helped create an inclusive   for mental health charity Restoration Trust.

The Restoration Trust collaborated with digital storytelling agency Muddle Up and social enterprise futureCodersSE to create A Year of People Doing and Making. The report uses audio and an immersive digital experience to speak to a wide-ranging audience, with the aim of also making it a long-term asset for the Restoration Trust. The charity supports people in engaging with heritage and culture to help their mental health, with projects including ones at Stonehenge (main image), Norfolk Record Office and Norwich Arts Centre co-produced with participants. Audio interviews with these participants play throughout the report to give them a voice.
