IN THIS TOGETHER PROJECT

In This Together Project – rural communities, rural connections

We all know the impact Coronavirus has had on our communities, every single individual and family throughout the country. This project has been developed to try and showcase that even though we are all facing adversity and unprecedented times, community practitioners, community workers, volunteers and individuals are continuing to play a positive role. This shows true resilience and determination to help others.

Therefore we aim to showcase how relationships have developed during this pandemic. We want to explore areas and communities where relations have potentially developed for the better, during lockdown and how adversity has brought communities together even in a small way. We also want to showcase the best of rural communities and how individual and collective action has helped others, using storytelling as a method for collecting stories at this time.

Over the next few months, whilst this pandemic continues, we will be posting videos and short stories from individuals working in the community either, paid or voluntary and hear from them first hand about how we are “In this Together”. These videos will also be available on all our social media outlets so watch this space….

If you would like to be involved please contact Charmain on 028 8676 6670 or email charmain@ruralcommunitynetwork.org
 
Thanks to Housing Executive for helping with the funding for this project.
