InclUSion Matters service users from Northern, Belfast, South Eastern and Western Health and Social Care Trusts recently participated in a photography group via WhatsApp. 

This group formed in November 2020 and engaged with weekly themes such as Food, Buildings, Photo Editing, Patterns, Hobbies, Homemade, Reminiscing and Goals. 

Feedback from service users was positive. Comments included;

“Great”, “cool to see all the photos”, “really appreciate the ideas” and “really enjoyed the group.”

The project culminated in the prestigious Spring Photography competition which involved one month to submit photos and entries formally judged by Cedar Foundation staff members.  The winner and runner up received a framed print of their photos and a special treat. 

Winner: Lisa
