Job packs are available below in PDF format, audio format and as videos (there’s also a captioned, introductory video below about the project). If you would like to access this information in another format, please email us. We’ve included large print versions in mono and in blue, green and purple colours so far. We’re more than happy to add further versions upon request.

We held 15 x 1-2-1 Zoom & phone sessions w/c 13 September and have collated Questions and Answers in a Frequently Asked Questions video and doc pasted below the job packs on this page.
