BBO GCtW appoints new Lead Key Worker

We'd like to welcome Paula Johnson to Cumbria CVS as the new Lead Key Worker for the the Building Better Opportunities Getting Cumbria to Work (BBO GCtW) project. Paula will be working alongside Nat and the rest of the team to deliver this exciting project in Barrow and South Lakeland working with five project partners: The Well, Women's Community Matters, Cadas, Right2Work and Imagine Independence

The project, which has recently been extended to late in 2020, is funded by the European Social Fund and The National Lottery Community Fund will help to make a solid and sustainable difference in people's lives.

Paula joins the team from Women's Community Matters where she was working as a Key Worker within the BBO GCtW project. "I'm looking forward to Paula becoming part of the Cumbria CVS team and working with the team of key workers within the project. Recent changes in the project partnership, coupled with the project extension, have resulted in a larger team of key workers. Paula, as new Lead Key Worker will be excellently placed to lead, support and manage this team." says Nat.

"This project provides an excellent opportunity to support its communities across Barrow and the South Lakes to increase their social and economic capital through accessing the support and expertise of our partners organisations. Barrow and South Lakes is already doing great work with a wide range of participants. I'm hoping that we can use the coming year or more to build on our successes and further develop the BBO offer and get Cumbria to work."
