Station House Media Unit (shmu), supported by Aberdeen City Council as one of the core cultural organisations in the city, is at the forefront of Community Media development in Scotland, supporting residents in the seven regeneration areas of Aberdeen in radio and video production, traditional and on-line publications, music production and digital inclusion. The organisation also supports other disadvantaged communities, both geographic and communities of interest, with an employability and training arm, and a recently developed a programme for offenders, both pre and post release.
Successful initiatives have made the organisation a nationally recognised centre of excellence and created models of good practice in: youth work; regeneration; digital inclusion; adult and family literacy and numeracy; community capacity building; personal and community development; employability skills; criminal justice, and the curriculum for excellence.
Sue Ryder is a British palliative, neurological and bereavement support charity based in the United Kingdom. The organisation provides care and support for people living with terminal illnesses and neurological conditions, as well as individuals who are coping with a bereavement.
Help us be there when it matters. Last year, over 15,000 volunteers supported us across the charity, and without them, we simply couldn’t achieve our ambition to provide more expert care for more people. Come along and join our friendly team in the Prestwick Shop to help raise money for this worthwhile cause.
