James Cleverly visits Eastlight House

James Cleverly visits Eastlight House to meet the Braintree and Halstead All In teams.

All In is a set of pioneering community projects created through Eastlight Community Homes’ trailblazing community empowerment programme.

Commenting on his visit, James said:

“I initially heard about the “All in” project 15 months ago when Eastlight told me how they planned to offer paid employment to residents in the Braintree District to create community projects. Since then I have seen the teams work together, choose their schemes and work in their communities.

“The teams presented the pilot schemes they have launched after spending 10 months creating a community-led solution to social issues.

“I’m so impressed with everything these two teams of local residents have done to get these community projects off the ground.

“Braintree’s Kinder Minds and Halstead’s Grow with the Flo are fabulous community projects, a huge thank you and well done!”
