Impact on people

Here are short stories of people we worked with over the past few years

Robert Poizer

Robert Poizer joined us from the Red Brick Building in Glastonbury.

“Here is a group of people who clearly have the vision, intelligence and ability to recognise the needs of their own, and the wider community and respond with an offer that has relevance, vibrance and focus on the underlying cultural shifts required as well as a practical way forward. We have learnt from our visit and look forward to collaborating going forward. Thank you to the whole Edventure team.”

Catalia Quiroz Nino

Catalina Quiroz-Niño is a researcher focused on organizational change, participatory governance in social enterprises and start-ups. She joined the tour with a group participating in an EU funded programme.

“We would like to say a big thank you for all you have offered us today, your passion, your knowledge and your practical experience! All this has made our visit a meaningful one in all senses. We hope to continue to be in touch for sharing all the potential experiences that might come from the visit after being inspired by your work!”

Sylvie Mohabir

Sylvie joined Edventure for the day from the Network of Wellbeing in Totnes.

“The tour was inspirational and gave me a spark to do similar initiatives for my own organisation and community. The members of the team we met were bubbling with enthusiasm and ideas, it's a great place to learn from and get involved."

Caroline Haworth

Caroline joined Edventure from Hive Portsmouth, a strategic partnership in Portsmouth consisting of a representative group of the voluntary and community sector, NHS Portsmouth Clinical Commissioning Group and Portsmouth City Council.

"Thank you for a great day. It was so good to meet you and your team members and hear from the students. The tour gave me a real sense of community and what a lovely place Frome is. The structure of the day was perfect and well organised, so a big thank you to you."

Adrian L’Anson

Adrian is a city councilor in Wells and joined our tour in 2021.

Thank you very much for our visit. As a Wells City councillor, I am working with others to plan for effective and sustainable use of the Portway Annexe building which we are about to buy from the County Council. We received from you not only sound advice as to how we can best use this opportunity but also a huge amount of enthusiasm and inspiration. A hugely valuable experience!
