New recruits and new partnerships - Barnwood Trust

New recruits and new partnerships

As part of Barnwood Trust’s vision for the future we have expanded our team and commissioned a number of organisations to work on our behalf.

Joining Barnwood Trust are new Research Coordinator Clare Fletcher and new Communications Coordinator Lucy Poulton, bringing the team to six. Led by Chief Executive Dr Sally Byng, we will concentrate on the coordination and overall delivery of the Trust’s ten-year Unlocking Opportunities plan, focusing on making real and important changes for people with disabilities and mental health problems across Gloucestershire.

Barnwood Trust has commissioned the charity BasicNeeds to deliver the community animation programme, a key part of the ten-year plan. Community animation will seek to identify and develop the skills and confidence of local people to address issues they have and enable them to become more involved in their community in a way that they wish. A newly-formed team of six people will be delivering this programme across Gloucestershire.

The Trust has also commissioned Cormac Russell from Nurture Development to implement an asset-based community development (ABCD) programme across Gloucestershire which will focus on building communities which are more hospitable and inclusive of people with disabilities and mental health problems, complementing the work of the community animation team. Click here for a video in which Cormac talks about ABCD and ‘people powered change’.
