We're excited to be hosting an interactive Newcastle Engage Fellowship event. This is an opportunity to hear about diverse projects led by RSA Fellows, and offer your skills and support.
This online event will be dedicated to project pitches. You'll be able to hear the pitches and then discuss specific projects and feedback in a group setting.
Beatrix Groves-McDaniel - Recognition of voluntary activities.
I am working on the establishment of a volunteer skills framework that will enable a means of recognising voluntary skills, quality, training needs, and how this might be linked to national standards. I’m interested in feedback from others that might create imaginative approaches to extending this concept in ways I haven’t considered.
Hellen Giblin-Jowett - Community Sponsorship: how to build a community through refugee resettlement.
Putting together the ideas of Community Sponsorship and 'Relational Practice', this project seeks to forge a new way to strengthen existing UK civil society, through working to rehouse and resettle refugees.
George Stoker - High Stoop Woods Development as an environmental education destination.
Working with the woods owner, Friends of High Stoop Woods’ creative team, a professional illustrator and the charity WildAid, we are developing environmental education capacity at this community arts woodland. WildAid works with North East schools to deliver environmental projects and will now extend its work by holding events for inner city pupils at the site.
Don Pinchbeck - DistaCare.
Working with a consultant psychiatrist in 2004, I developed a system that enabled simple contact for aged or dementia affected individuals to find relief from loneliness and isolation. That's the beginning, there are steps forward that involve avatars, remote sensors etc. It failed because of expense and difficulties with a Windows-based system, but trials showed that it worked effectively. Newcastle City Council invested £50K in a trial.
