Emma Carter (Commissioning Manager – Enterprise Contracts & Business Development Adult Social Care. Leeds City Council):
Leeds City Council Community Builder met with Robin, member of ‘Middleton Elderly Aid’, and supported him to start a local group where he teaches others to build walking sticks.
This has enabled him to get to know many others and forge friendships while following his passion.
A local resident told a Community Builder about her passion for poetry.
As a result, poet Michelle Scally Clarke led some sessions attended by people of different ages and nationalities.
