SPB061: “I didn’t know that” – Good End of Life Care educational video for staff at Poole Hospital NHS Foundation Trust

Create a short video about good End of Life Care for healthcare professionals at Poole Hospital. Good End of Life Care should focus on helping people who may be approaching end of life to Live Well. The true definition of End of Life Care is “all of the care received in the last year of life” (recognising that this could extend to more than a year, or be shorter). By simply educating healthcare professionals in the definition of End of Life Care and highlighting that everyone who works in healthcare is in part responsible for delivering end of life care, we can improve care across Dorset. The video must be informative, but delivered in a very imaginative and fun way.

SPB068: Raising the Profile of Bradford Abbas Village

The aim of this project is to provide better information about the village for visitors and members of the community. The information is to be both historical and current; i.e. an ‘interpretation board’ that explains the history, people and places associated with the village; and the ‘village plan statement’ located on the Parish Council website. This project will involve working with Bradford Abbas Parish Council and Bradford Abbas History Society.

SPB083: The Shine Project health and wellbeing event

The Shine Project ran their first Health and Wellbeing Event in June 2017. The aim of the event was to inspire girls to think positively about themselves and encourage good physical and mental health. The event was held at Bournemouth Pavilion and had exhibition stands from 22 different organisations including local charities, youth services and businesses. In addition to the stands, the girls were encouraged to take part in one of the many different timetabled workshops such as drama, dance, music or mindfulness. Over the course of the day over 200 girls from 12 different schools attended and 99% of the girls said that they would do it again.

The Shine Project would like to run the event again in February 2019. There are a variety of opportunities available including event management, marketing and communication, media production and audio visual.

SPB084: Stop Plastic Seas petition promotion

Stop Plastic Seas is petitioning the UK Government to introduce a national awareness day against the plastic in our seas. This is spearheaded by member of the local community who became concerned about the amount of plastic encountered in the sea when they went swimming.  The project aims to raise public awareness and increase education around this problem in the local and national community. A national awareness day about plastics in the sea will provide an annual focus where all organisations and individuals against plastics in our seas can come together to raise awareness and collaborate. Formulate a plan to promote this petition so it receives more than 100,000 signatures by April 2018.
