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 illness, multiple disadvantage and ethnic inequalities in their region, yet remain below the radar, is to be launched by Synergi in July 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, including creative or artistic, to tell the story instead.

We will provide a list of criteria in August 2018 to assist with the nomination process and explain how the 30 shortlisted entries will be selected. The legacy podcast series will feature 20 candidates, with their agreement, while  10 highly commended entries will be profiled on the Synergi website.

If you would like to find out more and/or are interested in making a nomination, then email [email protected].

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