What is happening

We Can Work it Out – so it begins…

In January Lucy Brockie has taken up post as the Project Manager for this exciting 3 year project.

Lucy Brockie Project Manager – We Can Work it Out

Hi I’m Lucy, Project Manager of the new ‘We Can Work It Out’ project. The aim of the project is to work with individuals and families across Cardiff and together develop solutions to addressing in-work poverty. I am so excited to be part of this project! There is a lot that can be done to better support families working in Cardiff. It can be difficult to achieve things by ourselves but together we are stronger and can achieve great things! I look forward to meeting and working alongside many families in Cardiff and getting to know you better. If you are passing South Riverside Community Development Centre please do come say hello.”
