As part of Safe Ground’s 21st Birthday celebrations, we held an Open House event at our Battersea offices to mark the charity’s inauguration day. This was a fantastic opportunity for the public to drop in and learn more about the organisation’s history. The day involved hearing first-hand accounts of the impact of Safe Ground’s programmes from Alumni members and delivery staff , watching film screenings from our archives, visits to the pop-up gallery space where Alumni art work was on display, and attending an object handling session with Stewart McLaughlin from Wandsworth Prison Museum.
