'Me & You' Project
The last year of the 'Me & You' Project!read more...
We are now entering into the last year of funding for our 'Me & You' Big Lottery funded project. The project is aimed at young people between the ages of 15 to 25 with a physical disability, special need, learning difficulty, behavioural disorder or debilitating illness.
The 'Me & You' programme is an opportunity for these young people to discover new interests and learn new skills by engaging in positive outdoor activities.
- "I felt happy on the project - when I did practical things I was able to concentrate really well"
- "The project has made me think about the possibility of working outdoors in the future"
- "The project has given me the confidence to believe I can be who I want to be!"
Having learnt photography skills for the first time on the 'Me & You' programme, Gregory Campbell and Sian Bebb were both winners in the Albrighton Trusts Summer Photography Competition.
As well as daily sessions learning horticulture, conservation & wildlife and angling, participants are now learning basic skills in woodcraft and photography.

Daughters of Fortune
An exciting new project exploring learning-disability and parenthood...read more...
It is a project about humanity, of human experience. It aims to resonate with everybody, with or without a disability. Everybody was a child, everybody has a mother, every body has a belly button to prove it.
The issue of learning disability parenthood is complex. Medical experts, geneticists, social workers, council officers and advocates have all been involved in the creation of Daughters of Fortune. The most important people involved however are the learning-disabled parents who have kindly shared their real life stories with us.
The Daughters of Fortune Family includes three major productions:
- Anna: An interactive forum theatre piece
- Mia: A national touring production
- Zara: A site-specific, large scale, outdoor spectacle
The Daughters of Fortune Family will continue to grow over the next 18 months so keep checking back here to follow the development of the project.
Mind-The-Gap are performing Daughters of Fortune next week at The Arena Theatre Wolverhampton on the 9th and 10th of November.

Rural Media has teamed up with Borderlines Film Festival 2017 to create the Best Short Film Award for Breakthrough Talent.
We're on the lookout for new film-makers... the deadline for submissions is 16th December so you'll need to get your skates on!
All the finalists will have their films screened at the festival as part of a 'celebration of young talent' event and a panel of film industry professionals will select the winner, who will receive £500 in prize money.
Borderlines Film Festival, the UK's largest rural film festival based in Herefordshire and Shropshire, will be celebrating its 15th anniversary in 2017 and Rural Media, a Herefordshire based production company and charity producing award-winning films and digital arts projects, have joined together to celebrate and give a new platform for first time and emerging film-makers.
We love film in all its glorious forms, from animation to drama, gritty documentaries to experimental hybrid work. The films should be no longer than 15 minutes (including credits) and although the film-maker must be UK based, as long as English subtitles are used, the films can be in any language. We are after current material so your film needs to have been made between August 2015 and the submission date.
To enter, please go to ruralmedia.co.uk/charity/best-short-film-award There is a submission fee of £25.00 which can be paid via Paypal, cheque or bank transfer. Please note any submissions received without the £25 fee will not be considered.

The deadline for submissions is 6pm on Friday 16th December 2016. Borderlines Film Festival takes place from 24th Feb until 12th March 2017 and we'll let you know whether you have been successful or not before the Festival programme goes live.
