What is an Outcome?

It has been a busy passage of time since my last blog entry. The first Cohort of the Impact in Action programme have attended the Leading Change session where we discussed project planning, being an open leader and open organisation, identifying a need to change and handy time management tips. It was a jam-packed session which included a resource pack and a lot of links to useful websites.

Stronger Charities for a Stronger Society report and Impact

For some people this work has fallen to them by default.

Good Gym Launches!

GoodGym has launched in Bexley! 

GoodGym is a community of runners that combine getting fit with doing good.  They stop off on their runs to do manual labour for community organisations and to support isolated older people with social visits and one-off tasks they can’t do on their own.  It’s a great way to get fit, meet new people and do some good.  There are three main strands of the work that GoodGym are doing:  

Crossroads Carer group

Are you a carer?

Are you an adult over 18 caring for someone living in Bexley who due to illness, disability, a mental health problem or an addiction could not cope without your support?

If so you are entitled to a carer’s assessment.  

Impact in February

With one month under my belt and a whole lot of project planning in the bank I looked forward to February coming around. Looking back, I managed to achieve a lot so far (blowing my own trumpet...) and Feburary saw 4 key milestones reached:

The Great Weight Debate Conference
