It’s down to great chemistry. That’s what Greg and Laura say about the success they’ve had on the Leaders Together project.
Paul and Joanna share the role of co-ordinator for the scheme. They were concerned that they might face a funding crisis and felt it would be a lifeline to have a mentor as part of the Leaders Together project.
“I got really excited. I thought it could be a great local community project - employing over 55’s, refugees and young people and using recycling materials.”
Like many others, Edith Hamilton was keen to broaden her skills and her horizons. Whilst her job as Interim Finance Director at CILT, the National Centre is extremely busy, Edith was keen to help mentor someone from a Refugee Community Organisation and the project Leaders Together seemed the best route.
Andy says "I heard about Leaders Together and felt that I could put my skills, experience and substantial knowledge of all aspects of governance and management to good use by mentoring a Refugee Community Organisation (RCO) leader."
Seeing real benefits already, Ahmad and Jackie are continuing to work together, Ahmad says "I have more areas I'd like to speak to Jackie about including the business plan and I'm really excited about the opportunities that this mentoring relationship will bring in the near future."
