Adrift - Hull, Hessle Road & Away





 August 2014

 Film makers George Adams and Johnny Mercer have just released their latest film as part of the Lottery funded Giroscope film project Wider Angles. The project trained up seven volunteers in the process of producing the film. The film looks at life on Hessle Road, the heart of Hull’s former trawling industry. This is the second of two films made by the George, Johnny and the volunteer team, the first, a shorter film about Giroscope’s work is also available on the website.



Volunteer Project wins Royal Approval







June 2014

Giroscope has been awarded the Queen's Award for Voluntary Service. This award is equivilant to an MBE and is the highest award that can be given to a voluntary group.

It recognises the commitment, enthusiasm and dedication of all of our volunteers who have worked with Giroscope over the years.

Since the start of the year 32 people have volunteered with Giroscope, contributing 815 days work in the first 5 months of 2014.














 Our volunteers help us bring empty and derelict properties back into use, improving our neighbourhood and providing secure, affordable accommodation to people in housing need. Volunteers on our project gain hands on work experience on our house renovations and learn construction skills to improve their employability.

We would like to thank everyone who has volunteered with Giroscope over the years whose countless hours and hard work have made the organisation the sucess it is today



Giroscope: a short documentary


Short film about Giroscope made by a group of young volunteers with the assistance of a film editor.  The volunteers were involved in all aspects of the film production, learning how to use the camera, conduct interviews and edit the footage.  This project was funded by an Awards for All grant from the Big Lottery.
