A post from our Community Correspondent Laura McGlinn, taking a unique and insightful perspective on our brand new Mind Waves theme of ‘home and wellbeing’. As a child we would go to the Kelvingrove Exhibition Centre for the Ideal Home Show. Mum, dad, my little brother and I. It made for some truly happy memories […]
Recently our Community Correspondents were chatting about what the project means to them (we’ve created this short animation which captures their views).

It was an absolute privilege to work with the children and young people at Central and West Integration Network, helping them to make some animations about their lives.
