The Anxiety Map Programme incorporates awareness training, consultancy and programmes to find practical solutions to issues people experiencing anxiety may face when accessing public spaces. 


How does AMP work?

We are working with businesses, venues and organisations to look at how living with anxiety can impact day to day living and increase social isolation and loneliness. Our training programmes help promote understanding about the challenges around living with anxiety and how small adjustments to public spaces can make a huge difference. We are also developing maps of venues and their facilities to provide easy access for people navigating public spaces to find a space where they can manage feelings of anxiety and be met with a supportive and compassionate response.

Why is this important?

For many people, living with an anxiety or panic disorder can make everyday activities overwhelming and frightening. By creating spaces within towns and cities for people to take a moment and by raising awareness and understanding through training, we can make these activities easier and more accessible to all.

What We Do

Founded in 2018, The Free Period Nottingham collects donations of period products and distributes them to organisations across the county. We believe that all people who menstruate should have access to period products, so if you are an organisation in the community and require donations, please get in touch.


How You Can Help

Since the beginning of the pandemic began, we have moved from face to face collections to online donations. The Free Period Nottingham has an online wishlist which can be viewed here. All of your donations are hugely appreciated.

If you have collected donations for The Free Period Nottingham at an event or at your organisation, please get in touch and we can organise collection.

I was commissioned by Nottingham Forest Community Trust in March 2020 to deliver their mental health and wellbeing programme 'Tricky to Talk'. The programme offers peer support groups, events, training and collaborative partnerships to support communities, raise awareness and reduce stigma in relation to mental ill health. 

As the lead for this important programme, I am delighted to be able to deliver this work and I am excited for our plans for the future.
