The Shielding Community Project- Motion North East CIC
The Shielding Community project is a 6 week interactive social group project tackling social challenges for the disabled community in North Tyneside and Newcastle.
Funded by the National Lottery Community Fund, the project is open to those aged 16 plus years with disabilities and those supporting those with disabilities and organisations who provide support services to their community.
The project includes weekly Zoom catch up meeting with guest appearances and an open Facebook Group with daily posts offering advice and support on a range of topics.
The group is all about communication and sharing what everyone is up to. Project lead Jonathan Baker said “I am trying to create a friendly and fun atmosphere. I’m covering the health and fitness aspect with my own organisation and we have an accessibility consultant involved, Emotional Respite – Disability counselling service, Northumberland IASS and Disability North all contributing so far”.
