Welcome to ECHO
A very warm welcome to our new website. We are so proud of the work we do and hope you will enjoy the new design which should make it easier to find what you are looking for.
What is ECHO?
ECHO aims to make a real difference to the lives of disabled people across Herefordshire,. We have been doing this for over 25 years. Being a small independent charity, we are able to respond to the needs of our 230 members. Our participants are closely involved in the running and governance of the organisation. This helps us develop projects they really need.
None of this could happen without the volunteers that work in every part of ECHO- over 90 of them give their time and expertise. We gratefully acknowledge that we could not offer the range of services we do without them.
We hope you find what you need. Don’t forget to follow us on social media too.
In the spotlight
The talented group at Frock On undertook a project last year to research 17th century waistcoats and then go on to create their own versions from fabric destined for landfill. Following the launch in October the exhibition has been featured in Patchwork and Quilting magazine and moves to National Trust property Berrington Hall for 6 months.
