#BreakingBarriers

#BreakingBarriers is a project designed to establish and develop a connection between young people from the local area, local heritage sites and environment. We facilitate and encourage positive dialogue amongst young people with regard racial discrimination, gender inequality, LGBTQ+, cultural stereotypes and mental health – breaking down the barriers between young people and these issues through informal education, outdoor activities, guest speakers from differing backgrounds and direct conversation.
