Nick spends time at The Parchment Trust

November 20, 2008

2008_1120november0800022On Monday, my daughter and I spent a really wonderful couple of hours at the Parchment Trust in Nelson Road, Hastings. 

The Trust also has a horticultural project up on The Ridge, which I hope to visit early in the new year.

The Nelson Road HQ provides the opportunity for people across a broad spectrum of learning and physical disabilities to meet together, form connections and work towards their goals.

This is a link to their website – and a very moving statement of values.

I had the chance to speak with Andrew Phillips the General Manager – who has been at the Trust since it first started out some 14 years ago.

We had a very valuable conversation about the kind of creativity needed to enable the people that use The Parchment Trust to be contributing to society in a way that feels meaningful to them.

Do go and see for yourself if you get the opportunity.  It’s a very special place.
