CNC took part in a photography workshop with Periscope Productions CIC, who work with national charities and social enterprises, employment services, health organisations and more. Celebrating with communities, people, and organisations that have stories to share and campaigns to promote by creating bold and visual films and photography installations.
Our service users, support staff and volunteers worked together over a six week period and took part in this promotional video on Monday 29th July. Everyone had a fabulous time, and where all inspired to continue to learn more and the whole group found the project strengthening and invigorating which had a massive impact on their health & well-being, which hopefully comes across in the video.

CNC have recently completed a project with the 'Illegal Money Lending Team' (IMLT) who work as 'Stop Loan Sharks', in local communities.
This began when Karen, one of our managers, applied for funding to work with 'Safe Regeneration' after one of our clients was targeted by loan sharks in the area.
This involved working in conjunction with two of the 'Safe Regeneration' team, who helped create a template for a mosaic design with clients and support staff.
Together they worked to come up with an idea that represented their interpretation of loan sharks and to turn a negative into a positive, creative work of art.
Karen and her team started an Art group on Wednesday's in one of the supported living accommodations for all clients from various houses and accommodations, to join in and get involved. Each week more and more people would attend and the Safe Regeneration team found the energy and enthusiasm at the classes overwhelming, and the project was a great success.
A wonderful day enjoyed by all
CNC volunteers & managers
