I Can Make It at CAN DO in Newcastle

24 November 2017

I Can Make It meets CAN DO in Newcastle and gets featured in a summary of an important conference on social value.

On Friday 17th November, our Champion for I Can Make It in the North-East, Jonathan Mears, attended a meeting of the Newcastle-upon-Tyne Branch of CAN-DO, which offers volunteering opportunities for people with disabilities aged 18-35.

At the meeting, Jonathan met Ruth Bowen, Senior Can Do Project Coordinator, and Ann Henderson, CAN-DO Project Coordinator, to explore possible opportunities for our campaigns to work together.  

Jonathan also heard about aspirations and work training by the Twisting Ducks Theatre Company.
