Inclusion launched by Willowdene and YSS

Inclusion Consortium BBO marches 2015

Willowdene and YSS  have  formed a Community Interest Company, called  Inclusion  Consortium  for this  project and this  was launched  on 22 September, at  a very well  attended meeting held at  Lightmoor Community Centre in Telford, with over 50 organisations  expressing an interest.   Delegates heard  more about the  Big Lottery / ESIF  funding  for Building Better Opportunities  in Shropshire  and Telford & Wrekin.

Dr Matt Home,  Willowdene  Director said

  • “We are delighted with the positive feedback already received, there is a real sense that we can provide an inclusive solution to supporting those that are disadvantaged to overcome the barriers to employability and help improve social inclusion by using innovation and the strengths of organisations across the area “

Lorraine Preece, YSS CEO added

  • “Willowdene and YSS have wished to work together for awhile but have been looking for the right opportunity that fits with our shared values.  We are very excited at this opportunity, it is exactly what we have been looking for, we very much hope to identify partners who want to share the journey with us. “
  • “Harnessing the passion and motivation of the sector to work with those who are furthest away from employment, helping them to  break down the barriers (real or perceived) and making a difference to peoples lives, that’s what we are all about. At the same time, there is an opportunity  to support and upskill the sector through training and shared learning.”
