We Can Work it Out – Big lottery Funded Project
This 3 year lottery Funded project is aimed at helping BAME (Black, Asian and minority ethnic people) families experiencing in work poverty across the city of Cardiff. Uniquiely the first year will not provide any services but is looking to co-produce potential solutions and services required on the back of the first years’ work with people who are living the experience of in-work poverty. The New Economics Foundation with their nationally recognised track record of person centred innovation have been funded to help the project manage the co-production phase of this first year.
The project team will comprise of one project manager and up to four part time project workers and one administrator. The lead agency is South Riverside Community Development Centre (SRCDC) who will lead on the project, manage the project manager and will be the link with the Big Lottery fund. Each of the project workers will be based with one of the four project partners, SRCDC [South Riverside], Women Connect First [South Riverside], Horn Development Agency [Butetown] and Oasis [Splott]. Each worker will link in with the community network each of the partners has developed over many years of operation working alongside families who met the criteria for being involved in the project . The Administrator will primarily be based at SRCDC.
