meet the team
Jess has been volunteering with Support U for more years than she cares to admit; in 2017, Support U launched the Wolfenden Project and Jess joined the team as a Project Officer. The project researched the 60 year anniversary of the Wolfenden Report, which recommended the partial decriminalisation of homosexuality; the lesson plans, displays, and public discussions can be found here . During this project, she fell in love with archival research and the rest, as they say, ‘is history’.
The National Lottery Heritage Fund, partner to the National Lottery, focuses on supporting and developing heritage to inspire communities and promote cohesion. It supports organisations across the UK to deliver valued and necessary work in redeveloping heritage. We are so thankful to the National Lottery Heritage Fund for supporting this project!
Reading Museum has been displaying Reading’s history and art since 1883. They’ve have been committed supporters to Support U’s heritage and activism endeavours. Special thanks to Brendan Carr for diversifying the Reading Museum display and providing us with a venue for community talks!
