Against the Grain was set up just over 2 years ago. The project team and Board of Trustees have been on an exciting journey since its inception. However, due to challenging financial circumstances, the Trustees have reluctantly decided that it is necessary to suspend current operations, with effect from 20th December 2017. The project team will, therefore, be winding down our current activities over the next few weeks.
The Trustees’ intention is to build on the learning from the last two years to develop a new delivery model, with a view to recommencing operations under that new model if and when circumstances permit.
The Trustees are sad that this decision has proved necessary; we are all proud of what Against the Grain has achieved for the benefit of the public, young people and the environment. We wish to thank everyone (staff, trainees, volunteers, funders, supporters and stakeholders) for their support and encouragement over the last two years.
