Teenage Emotional Wellbeing and Environmental Engagement

Our project used environmental, and creative arts related activities, to support the young people’s emotional wellbeing and self-confidence. The programme’s activities developed their arts-based skills and also included visits to Haystax Inclusive Farm Experience in County Durham, where they participated in a range of environmental based activities.The project was kindly funded by Consett Rotary Club, with additional support from the County Durham Community Foundation ‘Community Arts & Culture Fund’ and culminated with a final celebratory event, to recognise the achievements of the young people.

I Don't See You as Disabled

"I don't see you as being disabled", said my friend at dinner the other night. The reactions of my other friends at the table were a clue they had said something inappropriate, but they weren't sure what. When we got home that night, they messaged me with a puzzled apology. I'd like to share with you my response.Our fabulous Trustee, Claire Dellar explains how proud she is to be disabled.
