War Detectives - the stories of local people

On 10th June we held a Commemoration Day to celebrate our War Detectives project and watched the films we had made with local people, recording their stories of war time. The stories are informative, funny and very moving. You can watch them here on YouTube (opens in new tab or window) and read more about the project on our website here.

For people with learning difficulties we provide a lively day service, Options, in the barn at Swaffham Bulbeck and Options at the greenhouse giving horticultural/retail opportunities with our shop at Bottisham Village College, the shop sells plants and fruit and vegetables.

For people with autism spectrum conditions such as Aspergers we have Aspirations based in Swaffham Bulbeck.

We support young people with challenging behaviour to a BTEC in horticulture working with the National Trust on the kitchen gardens at Anglesey Abbey

People who have become isolated, sometimes as a result of mental health problems are supported through Support.

We offer support for people with disabilities or disadvantage to find volunteering or work opportunities through our Advance service which is available for people who live in Cambridge and South and East Cambs.

We use our experience and expertise to ensure that people with disabilities are able to play a full part in the community and engage in discussions and decisions about service provision.

Telephone our main number, 01223 81166201223 811662 , for further information or email info@red2green.org

 
People’s Postcode Trust is a grant-giving charity funded entirely by players of People’s Postcode Lottery.

Our project received £ 3000 from the Trust to help fund our Health for Life hub.
