LimeCulture celebrates 10 year anniversary

This week LimeCulture turns 10 years old!

As a national sexual violence and safeguarding organisation the last decade has been a wonderful whirlwind of experiences. We started out in 2011 with high hopes and big ideas but we certainly never thought that we could possibly achieve all the things that we have done as an organisation.

In the last 10 years, we have worked hard. Very hard. Thankfully there has not been any blood, but there has been sweat and tears. There has also been lots of late nights, thousands of journeys that have taken us the length and breadth of the country and even internationally. Hundreds of meetings, workshops and conferences – and more recently there has been hours of zoom meetings! But there has also been a whole lot of fun and an awful lot of laughter. We absolutely love what we do at LimeCulture.

During the last 10 years, we have met and worked with some incredible professionals, services and organisations. We have also had the honour of meeting some of the most inspirational people there are. Some of these people have been victims/survivors of the most abhorrent crimes imaginable and others have been the professionals who work tirelessly to support them, often in very challenging circumstances. It is them who inspire us to work hard to raise the standards and support a professional response to sexual violence and safeguarding. Our work is important – and it means a lot to us at LimeCulture to work towards making things better.

Our hard work has meant that we have had the privilege of being involved in a wide variety of work- exciting and innovative projects that we are proud to say have made a difference. We have done so much in the last 10 years that its difficult to know where to start, but we’ve selected a few of the highlights in the photo montage below.

We would like to thank all of our talented, dedicated and passionate staff- past and present. Individually, they are brilliant. Together, they are phenomenal. They make everything we do at LimeCulture possible, even when it seems impossible.

We would also like to thank our clients, colleagues and friends – we are so very grateful for your support.

10 years means a lot to us and as we step into our 2nd decade, we will continue to work hard. We have so much to look forward to and can only say thank you to the unfathomable amount of people that have made LimeCulture possible.

Cheers to the next 10 years!
