More about John:
My background has been in detached youth work and community development work and I have been involved with supporting a wide array of local community-based Projects and initiatives. The essential features have been to facilitate local ownership and empowerment and to ensure these projects have been developed in accordance with local people’s aspirations and vision. I am new to this area and arrive with an open mind, a blank canvas, and an enthusiasm to have a positive and effective impact upon the local community.
