No More Taboo
'Period Poverty' is real and happening right here in the UK and southwest, where 1 in 5 live in poverty. Being unable to afford sanitary products is just the tip of the iceberg, we need to change attitudes towards periods and break the taboos surrounding them. We are a social enterprise providing workshops, education, training and access to reusable menstrual products (menstrual cups and washable pads) to provide sustainable solutions to tackle period poverty.
We're looking for support to help us develop our enterprise/business arm, to reach more people and to get our message out there.

Dance for Parkinson's
A fun dance class for people with Parkinson's, and their partners or carers. Research has shown that dance and movement to rhythmical music can help improve a range of neurological symptoms often experienced in Parkinson's. The strong rhythms in the music appear to have the ability to over-ride the faulty messages sent by the brain to the muscles and create a pleasure in being able to move.
We need help with publicity to hopefully get more people to come to our weekly class in Exeter, and thereby enable us to continue with and maybe even expand the classes to different locations.

A social action support service that aims to help vulnerable people when they're coming out of hospital - helping people to come out and stay out by doing the kinds of things that friends and families would do.
We're looking for help to recruit many more Neighbourhood Friends volunteers
