I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself, I am Jackie, your local Community Development Officer and my aim is to bridge the gaps between rural communities and non-statutory services. As your Community Development Officer I will be working closely with local groups, volunteers, businesses and residents to implement new services and groups that I will revise as needed. Working closely with rural communities my aims are:
Piloting new ways of delivering non-statutory services.
Start up new groups and services that residents feel are missing from local communities.
Facilitate community engagement.
Support local people to enable them to deliver new services.
Develop innovative projects to improve health and wellbeing.
Improve volunteering opportunities and training placements.
Support and develop local community led hubs.
Create communities that are self-reliant and increase economic independence.

I would love to hear about services and groups that you would like to see developed in your areas or if you have any events such as coffee mornings or Fayres that I could attend to speak to people living within these communities. Please feel free to contact me to discuss ways that I can work with your communities to offer developments and improvements of services.
