We are beginning to have offers of help with our programme from people who work in the relevant industries – sometimes because they have volunteered as engineers with our groups, and sometimes because they have heard about us and want to support what we do. They will only start to appear here gradually as we experiment with how to do this. We can approach companies with Corporate and Social Responsibility programmes to fill gaps, for instance. If you are a group with particular needs, do ask – we can’t help if we don’t know!
