Looking back on 2016 I am reminded of the exciting new developments our organisation has been championing.

Starting the year with the opening of Sam’s café was a particular highlight, that saw the culmination of months of planning, lots of borrowing (and on occasion persuading tradesmen to do jobs for free) and several reviews of my risk register.

It was an exciting night that was supported by all our local businesses and supporters, far more than I could have hoped for!

This new service now stands as the beacon of our commitment to young people in Lowestoft and we are incredibly proud of the work that quietly happens on a daily basis.

Watching shy, quiet, socially excluded teenagers blossom into trained baristas is an amazing sight to behold. Changing our workplace environment by employing 16 – 18 year olds has been a new direction for us, and one that has had a remarkable impact on us all as individuals.

There is of course one downside, employing individuals younger than ones own children, does make you feel old.

But, the slightly crazy, chaotic balls of excitement we now have joining the organisation also brings me clarity about why I do what I do.
