The group has met a few times and we’ve been working on getting to know each other.
The pandemic is genuinely wearing on people at all levels, and our aim is to build genuine connections initially so we can do the work.
Everyone’s tired so we couldn’t have done the work if we hadn’t come together in this way.
We have lots of different organisations involved, including Tang Hall Big Local, Changing Lives, Door84, York Cares and more. Lots of groups have come together and we are a holding a holistic point of view, rather than working from our own perspective.
We have a storyteller as a part of the programme which has been really useful. We are just 14 people but we want to reach out ‘beyond. In Nottingham there’s a similar programme running within similar aims so we want to see if we can connect and pull people’s views in from other cities.
