Through Project Bridge, the Paraffin have volunteered to lead over 15 workshops to successfully address many complex issues such as child exploitation, bringing people home from the hospital, supporting disabilities, volunteering, sitting services, the reunification of care, personalisation and childhood obesity.
Project Bridge brings together the local authority, the voluntary and community sector and cross-party elected members with local residents to solve some of the most important priorities. This is our way to give back to our local communities.
Paraffin is a bridge between the corporate and public sector. We apply our best practice in workshops and co-creation to enable collaboration on local community issues.
Our team can do good by doing what we do best, volunteering our time and skills as facilitators. Between July 2017 and June 2020, Paraffin senior facilitators volunteered over 23 days (184 hours), independently leading local communities, charities, councils and residents in co-production workshops in Portsmouth, Bedford and Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, including assisting with post COVID-19 recovery and prioritisation.
Paraffin gives people the freedom to bridge personal and professional lives within a framework of training and support on Project Bridge work.
