“If I’m bored, I’m walking out.”
“OK – that’s fine.”
“If anyone kicks off with me, I’m walking out.”
“That’s fine too. Thanks for letting us know.”
“I’m not performing. No way.”
“That’s ok. We can do it however you want to do it.”

12th-16th October is marked as a week of raising awareness of Hate Crime.
Is this enough? Do we as services only deal with Hate crime incidents during this week? You, of course know the answer yourself.

Using craft sessions to boost your CV? Yes, it works, and let me explain how.
My role at MVDA is volunteer development officer for the Step Forward Tees Valley project which aims to overcome barriers to work for people. One of the ways we do this is by supporting a participant into a volunteering position to enhance their skills, develop their confidence and boost their CV’s.

One of the best parts of working at MVDA is getting to meet lots of great people passionate about making life better for Middlesbrough’s people. I love the ‘cuppa and a natter’ approach and how we get to some really deep issues in the context of a ‘thinking out loud’ discussion. I’m always inspired by what people are doing, often in some of the most challenging circumstances, and this really stirs up my curiosity to really understand what life is like on a day-to-day level for the organisations we work with and the people they support.
