A Million Hands – programme opportunity

Did you miss the recent email from the Scout Association about ‘A Million Hands’?

A Million Hands a builds upon our current ‘Community Week’ and develops it into a more sustained level of activity, here is some of the details from www.scouts.org.uk… (click here to read full article)

What is A Million Hands?
For over a hundred years we have promised to help other people. A Million Hands is about mobilising half a million Scouts to support four big social issues chosen by young people and build long term relationships in communities. Imagine what we could achieved if we rallied behind the same causes.
•    Improving the lives of those affected by dementia with Alzheimer’s Society
•    Improving the lives of those disabled by society with Leonard Cheshire Disability and Guide Dogs
•    Improving mental wellbeing and resilience with Mind
•    Ensuring everyone, everywhere has access to clean water and sanitation with WaterAid   

The Canal & River Trust are supporting us to use land and waterways to make change on the above social issues. Appropriate organisations in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland are assisting us to ensure there is a UK wide reach. Please don’t contact partners until we have released the resources in late July so that partners have capacity to offer support.
