Mpower2Achieve enables young people in the UK to re-engage with education by working with bikes.

Mpower2Achieve [M2A] projects:

are bespoke training and development courses designed for young people

can offer a practical and non-academic alternative to mainstream education

enable learning of new skills and development of existing skills

centre on repairing, maintaining and improving bicycles

transform attitude and behaviour

boost confidence

M2A works in tandem with bikes4Africa, jole rider’s project delivering refurbished bikes to Africa. Applying their skills to bicycles which will change lives for young people just like them in Africa delivers a real sense of what young people’s actions can achieve.

M2A enables young people to transform their negative views of themselves, through gaining vocational skills, and develop a sense of ownership and pride, by completing practical projects.

If you think an M2A course would benefit students at your school or young people you work with, please contact us.

Streetlife makes it easy to connect and share with your neighbours.

From vid on youtube.

Social networking has changed the world, but to be honest, it can be a little…frivolous. Which is fun now and again, but trying to find someone local to talk about something meaningful can be frustrating. Say you want to meet like-minded people nearby, or share skills and possessions? What if you’ve got important news to tell your neighbors, or you want to volunteer in your local community? Knocking on doors is awkward, you never have time to talk over the garden fence, and your social network’s no use, because it only connects you with people you already know. And they could live…ANYWHERE.

Epipheo Studios shows you how Streetlife gives you an easy way to find people nearby in the UK who care about the place you call home.

Driving safety forward

October 26, 2011 Leave a comment

Companies in County Durham are being reminded of their responsibilities for their employees who drive for business purposes.

Durham County Council is working with small and medium-sized businesses to help them ensure they comply with legal requirements and have appropriate health and safety policies in place.

All employers have a duty to ensure, as far as reasonably practicable, the health and safety of their staff, including in relation to work-related driving.

The council’s road safety team is offering advice and guidance to companies to help them to ensure they comply with the law.

And thanks to funding from the Mid Durham Area Action Partnership, the team is also offering free driver taster sessions to companies within the AAP areas of Castleside, Lanchester, Esh Winning, Ushaw Moor and Brandon.

The sessions are aimed at demonstrating driving techniques that reduce fuel consumption, reduce maintenance required on vehicles and result in safer driving.

In addition, companies in the Bishop Auckland and Newton Aycliffe areas with staff who drive vans, company and private cars while at work are also being offered training courses focusing on safe and fuel efficient driving. This training has been made possible through funding from the Local Sustainable Transport Fund.

Alan Kennedy, road safety section manager at Durham County Council, said: “The legislation is clear that companies must have policies and procedures in place to manage and reduce the risks to staff who drive while on company business.

“It applies to all companies, even small start-ups, and therefore it’s essential that they know their responsibilities and comply with them.

“The road safety team is here to give advice and guidance to businesses to help them effectively manage their work-related road safety.

“With funded courses being available for company drivers in some areas of the county, businesses cannot afford to neglect this area of their responsibility.”

Companies can find out more about their legal responsibilities and whether they can take advantage of the free training by contacting the council’s road safety team on 0191 383 3767 or 0191 383 3769.
