Monuments Matter to People

This project will give residents of Torpoint, Saltash and Liskeard the opportunity to join a free, varied educational programme at Maker Heights, Rame.

The course will run every Wednesday over 24-48 weeks and will provide:

  • Educational skills in English, Maths and IT with the opportunity to gain qualifications 
  • Conservation training with a qualified Archaeologist 
  • Workshops from Samaritans on mental wellbeing and improving listening skills 
  • Opportunities to help preserve historic scheduled monuments 
  • Knowledge of a local Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) 

Benefits of joining the programme

Monuments Matter is designed to help with the first step of getting back into work or education. This programme is also your chance to be involved in conserving the landscape, all while:

  • Gaining education, training and life skills
  • Improving your health and wellbeing
  • Making long lasting connections to people  and places

The project will fund all travel expenses and childcare costs incurred by those attending the course, and lunch will be provided.
