I came along to the Leaders For Leeds breakfast meeting last week and felt that it was very worthwhile. The network breaks down barriers between people who are senior, influencers and practitioners in the city, enabling conversations to happen which hold a lot of promise for getting things done and changed for the good without the hindrance of layers of bureaucracy to burrow through.
I was able to share the experiences of our volunteers and tenants, as well as suggesting contacts and possible routes forwards. At Canopy for example, we already provide access to IT facilities to our tenants and others, but we may be well placed in the community to extend this as more people will need to use the internet when Universal Credit goes live.
