As part of a wider programme, four new Community Connectors employed by Unify Plymouth have begun work to improve the integration of diverse communities. Following the many years of work by Transforming Plymouth Together & Plymouth Octopus Project, building relationships between citizens and between groups, the connectors are off to a flying start.

Community Connectors are allocated to neighbourhoods in and around Plymouth. Kay Nicholls, Community Connector for St Budeaux, explained “I try to be approachable and helpful in my role which involves having conversations with multiple people from a variety of diverse backgrounds. I see my job as building connections between those groups and individuals within communities. It is surprising what people know and through my travels and interactions with people, I am able to draw on their life experiences and knowledge. I share what I have learned with others who may not know what is available for them in their local area.”
