Champagne and C.H.A.T bubbles up from Nowhere

Talented and creative festival goers at Nowhere Festival, located in the Spanish desert, made the most of Seamless's new Champagne and C.H.A.T sessions to map out their projects and life plans. 

The lively and dynamic group sessions mapped the way forward to help them realise their potential and ways to succeed in their endeavours, whereas the 1-2-1 sessions helped to resolve issues so that they could move forward with their projects and plans.

Champagne and C.H.A.T has since been developed into CHILL & C.H.A.T sessions, adapted to suit all occasions with a choice of beverages i.e. Coffee and C.H.A.T, Cool drinks and C.H.A.T or any combination that grabs you!

Our  service offers 1-2-1 sessions and group discussions to chat about projects, passions and the way forward.

To find out more about our new service visit our CHILL & C.H.A.T page.

‘Insight’ into sight impairment as new service launches

Service users, service providers and supporters heard about how a blind person feels and learnt about social enterprise, at the launch of a new service for the South West on Friday 9 September.  

Wendy Imashev, who has macular degeneration, started the free service to help people adjust to their condition and get the right support in place to achieve their goals in life.

Jonathan Holyhead, CEO of Dorset Blind Association launched the service at Poole’s Lighthouse Art Centre.

He said: "Insight aims to help people who are visually impaired to get the most out of their life. There are direct parallels in that with what my organisation does and we're pleased to support Wendy in her new venture." 

Wendy Imashev said: When I was diagnosed with macular degeneration I was forced to give up the job I had. If you experience something like that it derails you. From two years ago until now I faced many challenges in getting my life back on track.

"Insight is going to be about supporting people through that journey." 

UnLtd Development Manager for the South West, Annabel Sampson, whose organisation funded the project, described Wendy's vision and passion to make a difference.

She said: "Rather than sitting there seeing that something isn't working and wishing someone would do something about it, social entrepreneurs get out of the chair and they do something about it."
