Perspectives is a social action project in partnership with the Health Outreach Service in Suffolk, aiming to give a voice to people and groups who find themselves living outside of mainstream society, culture and services. The project will work with clients currently receiving health related services from Health Outreach, engaging them in sharing their life story and experiences to inform services.

The form this message takes will be determined by Perspectives participants, but could be shared in the form of photography, art, drama, or the development of training. Volunteering Matters will host a number of celebration events to share these messages.
