      Hi, I’m Zoë Freedman. I’m the Thriving Communities Network Officer at NASP.
      What do I do? I’m setting up the Thriving Communities network, running webinars and working on the Ideas Hub. I see Thriving Communities and this network in particular as a fantastic opportunity to connect up grassroots VCFSE organisations working really hard in their local communities, to offer them support and the chance to link up with others in their areas.
      A little more about me: I’ve come to NASP from the Personalised Care Group at NHS England where I’ve worked since 2017. Before that I was an opera singer and singing teacher – bit of a radical career change! As with most people in the arts I had various jobs over the years including Orchestral Manager, Recycling Promoter, and Travel Planning Advisor! I also did a degree in English and Theatre Studies many moons ago. I was going to end with ‘in my spare time I like to…’ but I have an 18 month old so don’t know what spare time is anymore.

      Hi, I’m Suzanne, the co-director of Advantages of Age. We support over 50s to discover pathways to employment by running an 8 week eLearning programme called Startup School for Seniors. We have been funded by London Community Response to develop our platform as a result of the thousands of over 50s made redundant or unemployed as a result of COVID-19. The first programme was delivered in September – November 2020 and, since then, we have been commissioned by Hammersmith & Fulham and Camden Giving to deliver programmes to their beneficiaries. We’re interested in social prescribing and especially within the context of how being in work contributes to wellbeing. Keen to explore partnerships with organisations who support older people that would benefit being part of a supportive communitive of over 50s seeking to explore their options specifically around how they relate to self-employment.

        Hi Suzanne. Thanks for joining the network! If you’re looking to find other organisations in the London area, do put a post in the London regional network to get the conversation going there as well.

        Hi Thomas. Great to have you here! Do join your regional forum and put a post in there if you’d like to find others in your area to connect with. Maybe you have some great resources about how to write successful fundraising bids? It would be wonderful if you wanted to share anything useful. You could start a thread on the national forum. Let me know if I can help at all.
