Community Worker First, Person Second!

I have not written a blog entry in so long, not for not wanting to but for not having the time to stop and reflect on our work or tell anyone about the exciting projects we have coming up, but before I begin to talk about Neo and the work we are doing, I want to talk about the role of a 3rd Sector Community Manager/Worker and how under resourced the 3rd sector is. 

An estimated three million children are at risk of going hungry over the holidays, when free school meals are off the menu, and the government has pledged £2m to help provide food and activities for children in some of England's poorest areas, among them Birkenhead, Merseyside.

So I have been saying for ages now, I will start writing some small notes about our days within Neo and what we all get up to on a day to day basis.

So here I am sitting on the train back from London again, what a couple of weeks, what better time to sit and get on with Blog #2.

In the last few weeks since writing the first of our blogs we have been so busy, we have had a half term with our #FeedingBritain project running which saw us serving 594 meals to children with no charge, using 93% surplus food, and having amazing resident artists in for the week.

 

Our director Ema was nominated this year for the Merseyside Woman of the Year O2 Community Impact Award.
