Last month I was on a bus on Stockton High Street. We were parked at a bus stop. I shouldn’t judge on appearances but the two people who were sitting right in front of me looked like a respectable young couple. They were smartly dressed and soft-spoken. They were laughing between themselves, looking at the woman’s mobile phone. Then they lifted the phone and took a picture through the bus window.

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.

A combination of chaos on the railways and a friend standing me up for tea left me all alone on Kings Cross Station until 8pm after the State of Caring Conference – hence the empty chair next to me! This gave me a chance to mull over the day’s events and to take stock of all things carers, particularly Middlesbrough Carers.
