Thank you Chloe for showing us around the church and telling us about The Trinity Project today. Established by Cardiff Methodist Circuit, the project aims to strengthen and support work with refugees and asylum seekers. The space itself acts as a hub for hive of community activity and events ranging from English classes, to drop in centres for Asylum seekers, offering craft classes, tea, coffee and food. Read more and follow the project here.
Plans for much much more are underway and Breaking Bread hopes to host a session there in the near future. Space4U also works in the church, providing comfortable spaces for those in need. We are looking forward to working with you soon, thanks for having us 🙂
Leah had a hugely informative day attending NESTSA’s latest event, ‘People Helping People: The Future of Public Services’ in collaboration with NESTA and the Cabinet’s Office Centre for Social Action. This is part of the UK wide new agenda to connect organisations doing social good with public services and government. Goeff Mulgan, Chief Executive of NESTA led a packed schedule of talks, workshops and networking.
A key note speech from Rt. Hon. Brooks Newmark MP, Minister for Civil Society marked his first public speech since taking his newly appointed role, nice to meet you! We met with some of the most exciting innovators working in the UK and overseas who are committed to their organisations making contributions to society. Leah had some very interested conversations with CodeClub, Spice, Shared Lives Plus, FutureGov, and The Thought collective (all the way from Singapore!) amongst many more.
CARIAD are committed to designing new innovations which have a positive impact on society. The Breaking Bread project will be following these initiatives closely as the project begins to scale up and work with volunteers in the community, we are excited to extend our reach to work across public services and government in Wales. Maybe even next year CARIAD will be one of the exciting new innovators.
