"Lots of things! Firstly, the postholder showed genuine commitment and enthusiasm for the work she was doing - we love that, as do most funders! We know that bringing people together in this way, to share their skills whilst learning from others, is one of the best ways of increasing peoples’ confidence and building self-esteem. Everyone has something to give. Funders talk a lot about “building on local assets.” The residents of Craigshill and South Howden are exactly that - their community’s greatest asset. CGNN recognises this by developing projects and activities which reflect the strengths and aspirations of its members whilst continually developing ways of breaking down barriers and reaching out to those people who for various reasons, are isolated from their community."
