Welcome to our Bridging the Gap Islington Newsletter – explaining how we help people through effective mentoring.
We are planning to change our name to make it clear that we help people across North London, not just in Islington.
We would like your ideas about new names for Bridging the Gap Islington.
“North London mentoring”? “Bridging the Gap London”?
Bridging the Gap Islington seemed like a good idea for a name when we started in 2012. But now we realise that it can cause confusion because it sounds like we work in Islington only.
Our services are for anyone in London. For that reason, we will be changing our name to better reflect the service we offer and the people we support.
Deciding to change is the easy part. Deciding on a new name is more difficult.
So we want to know what you think. Over February and March we are running a short consultation to get everyone’s ideas on different names. We would welcome your ideas! Please take just a minute to complete this survey or email your thoughts to [email protected].
Leaflets for your service users or residents
Often we find that the best way is to contact service users or residents directly. People will make better use of mentoring if they have taken the initiative to sign on themselves. We would be very happy to supply leaflets like this for you to distribute to your service users and residents.
