BUILDING ON WHAT’S WORKING WELL
Every project has the potential to save lives, and we want to celebrate the wide range of projects happening across the region.
Can YOU bring a small poster, or a short write up telling us about your project, to put up on the News Board?
Creating sustainable changes across the South West is going to depend on creative, energetic and determined local networks…….
There are many things that will help our networks to flourish so that more projects can be supported.
We need YOUR help.
Can you help build your local network?
