Project summary

Mosaic is a project designed to get folks outdoors who may not typically feel comfortable in the countryside. Using the Mosaic Champion Model this project has recruited and trained volunteer Champions from under-represented groups and these individuals have already planned and run their own walks throughout the South West Peak.

Champions have returned to their communities after training to encourage and facilitate other people from their community to visit and enjoy the South West Peak. Introducing new and excited groups of people to the South West Peak and encouraging them to build a connection with the place and its unique heritage continues to be exceptionally rewarding for everyone involved. Support and assistance is provided by Partnership staff and staff from the Peak District National Park.
