Tribal Project are a creative media charity working alongside the NHS, Lancashire County
Council, Discover and Phoenix Futures. They are currently based at St Wilfs, Fox Street,
Preston and offering an outreach service. They work with people in recovery from
substance misuse and in recovery from mental health issues. They also provide creative
media workshops for people who have begun the recovery journey and who have been
recently discharged from their primary care service provider.
They help people to reintegrate back into their community by providing them with new skills, training, volunteer experience, confidence and connections through our creative media workshops. These workshops involve film, art, drama, music and photography and are well attended by people throughout Preston and the surrounding area.
By keeping people engaged and active Tribal Project help reduce the amount of relapses within our community. By giving people this opportunity they can enrich the local community, help reduce crime and make our members assets and not burdens.
Tribal Project has become well established within Preston City over the last 18 months statistics show that their hard work is really having a positive impact within Preston City. At present they have over 80 members and their numbers grow weekly.
The Chorley VCFS Network has been assisting Strengthening Links between the Youth Network, Communities and Specialists. The Chorley VCFS Network took part in the North West UnDivided Launch on Wednesday 26th October 2016.
The Chorley VCFS Network’s own Donna Hussain led one of the themed circle discussions regarding Education Opportunities. At this themed circle, attendees and young people discussed if the ability study in European countries been jeopardised and what affect will that have on Young People in Europe as a whole.
BE ME has been co-designed by the Chorley VCFS Network and BME Young people across
Central Lancashire (Chorley, South Ribble and Greater Preston).
The initiative came about as a result of a number of consultations and discussions Chorley
VCFS Network conducted with individuals from;
• BME groups.
• Faith and higher education establishments.
• Organisations from the health and public sectors.
The consultations, which were conducted initially as part of an Interfaith and identity initiative, revealed that the majority of young people we spoke to across Central Lancashire felt they would benefit from local services more if they were part of a wider network.
BE ME are planning a launch event in collaboration with partners from across the sector. This is anticipated to be mid November at UCLan, members and partners from across the sector will be invited to attend nearer the time.
