Past projects include art, film, animation, gardening, mental-health first aid and many more. You can see all the projects here. We also hold a celebration day, which will be in November 2018 for new projects. If you have an idea for an activity, event, book, film or any other work which supports recovery, we’d love to hear from you. If making an application feels daunting, you don’t know where to start, or are worried it will all prove too much – get in touch. Our biggest aim is to help new people to create opportunities for themselves and others. We will also be holding a day for everyone to share their experiences and ideas on how they made their projects work, including those who ran last years Development Fund projects. So if you’re looking for inspiration, watch this space for an announcement coming soon!
