The Active Communities programme is now open for applications to support communities in Hull, East Riding, North East Lincolnshire and North Lincolnshire. The programme invests in local communities to help create fairer places to grow, live, work and age; where you live should not unfairly reduce the length of your life or the quality of your health. The programme wants great local ideas which build on the strengths within communities. Projects which: • are designed and run by local people • create stronger connections between people • help people to make their community or neighbourhood even better
It is with a mixture of sadness and delight that we announce that Isabelle Tracy has left Volcom after 14 years of dedicated and inspiring work to take up the exciting position of Project Director for Roots and Wings, Hull's Creative People and Places project.
Roots and Wings is a ten year programme of cultural transformation by, for and with the people of Hull.
Roots and Wings is a fantastic opportunity – not just for Isabelle, but for all of us in Hull, and we wish Isabelle the very best for the future.
Volcom will continue to share information about the Roots and Wings programme as the project develops and takes shape, including future opportunities for voluntary and community groups to get involved and play your part so watch this space!
As a result of these changes, we are happy to announce that Nicole Steele is stepping into the role of managing Volcom from this week onwards.
