Who we help
We help people in need due to reasons of age, trauma, ill-health, disability, financial hardship, or other disadvantage who are looking to use the projects as a springboard into a happier future or are lonely, socially-isolated or rehabilitating after an injury and illness and wish to increase their confidence and participate in a social activity.
We also provide one-to-one occupational counselling to individuals who are going through a career change and need some help to plan and manage their route forward.

What we do
Our purpose is to help people to become happier, more fulfilled and to find real meaning in their lives .
Our vision is of a world where people who have suffered from traumatic life-changing events, have been socially-isolated, vulnerable, disadvantaged or marginalised in any way, are happy and flourishing within mainstream society having secured meaningful occupations.
Through the world of heritage and history, our mission is to create work experiences that allow participants to gain more detailed insight into their authentic personalities, clarity about their goals in life, improve confidence and self-esteem and acquire an ability to present their value and worth to secure gainful employment.
