Our Story

In November 2019, The Faraway CIC directors; Thomas Jones, Laurie Kennedy, Jayne Moran and Tina Seed put together a document that would be the visions and values statement that became the basis of all future projects for the non-profit.

The first project funded by the CIC was the Autism Mentor project. In this they hired three members of staff with lived experience of autism to support other individuals in the autistic community to achieve their employment goals.

In late March, the United Kingdom went into lockdown.

Early into this, the CIC funded the For The Love Of Carers radio show, hosted by DJ Colin Binns and Stuart Virgo, which became a hit for local carers.

The show offered carers across Lincolnshire: messages of tribute, great music and would stop playing music, every week on Thursday at 8 for one minute, to allow listeners to join in with the nationwide clap for the NHS.

In September, Membership with The Faraway CIC went live, boasting a lot of bonus content and goodies to all that joined.
