2018 Shortlist | ArchWay Project
Shortlist – Improving Impact – charities with 0-3 paid staff
Who they are
The Arch-Way Project aims to support the health and well-being of local communities – especially those who have mental health issues.
What they’ve achieved
Trustees at The Arch-Way Project do more than just oversee projects – they get hands-on to make them successful.
Lack of staff might have stopped Past Times, an innovative 1950s-style event designed to help older people feel less lonely, in its tracks. Instead, trustees actively volunteered their time to keep it running. Together, they’ve helped amplify the impact: 89% of users say they feel much happier because of the project, with attendees rising four-fold in four years.
