Project summary

Mosaic is a project designed to get people outdoors who may not typically feel comfortable in the countryside. Using the Mosaic Champion Model this project will recruit volunteer Champions from under-represented groups and train these individuals to plan, organise and interpret the landscape of the South West Peak to other groups that are typically not visitors to this beautiful and dynamic area.

Champions will be expected to return to their communities after training to encourage and facilitate other people from their community to visit and enjoy the South West Peak. The goal of this program is to introduce new and excited groups of people to the South West Peak and to encourage them to build a connection with the place and its unique heritage. Support and assistance will be provided by Partnership staff and staff from the Peak District National Park.
