    Project Jigsaw: Connecting the Community



    Project Jigsaw is a new community project being piloted by the Co-op that will involve collaborative working with a number of community organisations/groups across Birmingham.  The Co-op have employed several Member Pioneers for Birmingham and Stephanie Nixon is the Member Pioneer for Yardley Wood and Billesley.  Stephanie will be looking at ways to tackle loneliness in Billesley and Yardley Wood; working with local organisation including Malachi Community Trust to enable outreach teams to help encourage those who are housebound or lonely to get involved with the different groups and activities within the community.


    With collaborative working the aim of the project is to create and build a stronger sense of community and to encourage outreach workers to promote and support those who are housebound, lonely or isolated find a group to join, whether they be seniors or single parents looking for suitable groups to join. 


    For more about the project you can visit the projects open Facebook group at: Yardley Wood Community Engagement.
