Useful toolkits for charities coming soon!
An innovative set of creative and fun activities and workshops that can be completed in the comfort of your own home, in hospital or care centres and homes. Including information and advice around capturing the impact of your activities. HYOC wants to promote your services and activities as much as possible. Highlight your activities under the themes listed below.
Take advantage of the Creative Directory by searching for local projects, artists, poets and many more who are ready and willing to support your activities!
The year is split into 12 themed months. This does not mean that we won't promote cultural activities that don't link with that month - your activity can take place any time in the year. The months exist to provide the year with some structure and allow us to focus our marketing activities.
They also help with the evaluation process.
