HeadsUp4HT

A network for headteachers;  past, present and future.

I have been a member of HeadsUp4HT since December 2020. I am often found at the Wednesday evening and Saturday morning support sessions. I have laughed, I have cried, I have got angry, become hopeful and felt truly connected to an amazing group of former, current and aspiring heads. The network and all it provides through the case studies, buddy system, crisis coaching Hopes4Ed events and the group sessions are all invaluable to me.

As a contributor to their amazing work, I offer an exclusive deal to all members of HeadsUp and their leadership team. HeadsUp members get a 10% discount on supervision and coaching sessions, and reduced rates for the bespoke wellbeing projects and staff CPD or wellbeing gatherings.

I am a non executive director of this small social enterprise based in Lincolnshire. It provides Horse Assisted Development and Therapy, to support children, young people and adults with additional needs with social and personal development. It assists in self confidence, reducing anxiety, raising self esteem and in communication. I am also a co-facilitator working at times alongside the CEO, delivering wellbeing and leadership development workshops.

As a social enterprise Glint can also support companies and organisations with their CSR (corporate Social Responsibility) and also supports teams and organisations with leadership development and emotional and mental wellness development or support.

HGCT

I am very proud to be on the board of the Huddersfield Giants Community Trust. It is a registered charity (1117768) and non-profit making organisation. Using the influence of professional sport, we are responsible for all community sports and educational & NCS initiatives on behalf of Huddersfield Giants Rugby League.  We are here to inspire, create opportunities, promote being active and as a whole building a community where everyone belongs.  Our vision is to be recognised as a charity and the number one provider of fun, sport education and social inclusion, whilst meeting the needs of the local community. Activity Inspiring People!   The Zone is our home where play happens!

Lisa Darwin, the CEO, said in May 2021: ‘Jenny is a trustee for the trust, she has been investing quality time with myself and my team to get us ready for returning to full time work and giving us all the chance to speak about our personal and work life balance. Jenny has some great tips about the way we work and how we can work smarter. We would like to think at the Trust we invest in our team to ensure we keep a good retention rate, having Jenny spending time with 121s with us all has definitely been a benefit to the trust. Looking forward to our next 121 in 6 weeks’ time. Thank you Jenny!’

Community Foundation for Calderdale

Community Foundation for Calderdale supports charities and voluntary groups across Calderdale, working alongside these groups to address inequalities and create opportunities for those who need them the most.

 As a Friend of the foundation I know I am supporting the work that is done to support vulnerable people and families in my local area. It also means that I can connect with charities and volunteer organisations across Calderdale to see how I can support and promote them. And it also means I am connecting with other values based businesses that care about the region we live and work in.
 
CFFC says ‘At Community Foundation for Calderdale, we believe in creating opportunities for everyone, especially in communities who need it the most. Working alongside our partners, our funding and expertise generate positive change in these communities, building a better future for everyone’.

Our Creative Connection

Our Creative Connection is a Social Enterprise that uses Photography for Social Change.

Based in Huddersfield but working across the North of England, our aims are to:

–          Help those who are often unheard gain a voice

–          Encourage critical conversations that bring about change

–          Support health & wellbeing through creative expression

We achieve this through participatory projects such as Photovoice which provides a means for people to show rather than tell how they feel about things that are important in their life.

In our work we use Photography to disrupt the over reliance on words within organisations and in community settings, bringing a more visual aspect to dialogue – we believe that seeing what someone else sees is more powerful than being told about it.
