New podcast series to highlight unsung champions

A new legacy podcast series, championing individuals, groups and organisations who have positively influenced and/or campaigned on mental health, multiple disadvantage and ethnic inequalities in their region, yet remain below the radar, is to be launched by Synergi in May 2018.

The aim is to give people the opportunity to nominate, with a testimonial, why the individual, group or organisation needs to be part of the legacy series. If the person, group or organisation is no longer with us, you can nominate someone who was closely connected to a project, campaign or piece of work to tell the story instead.

We will provide a list of criteria to assist with the nomination process and explain how the 30 shortlisted entries will be selected. The podcasts will profile 20 candidates, with their agreement, while the 10 highly commended will feature on the Synergi website.

A full update about the initiative will be posted on the website when the series is officially launched.
