Think carefully about who you already know, speak to your local Council, parents, colleagues you will find that many people have lots of skills they can offer especially to support the children in their learning.

We encourage our children to write letters, send emails, telephone companies and parents to ask for help and support, people often respond better when it comes directly from the children.

Always share and promote what you are doing using your website, newsletter, twitter and other social media accounts,

Anything is possible when people work together,

We believe NEMESIS is a tool/platform for such work through building a Co-Creation lab with a variety of stakeholders who have an interest and passion for improving prospects and projects in their local area.

We had a wonderful meeting with our local Council and our ward Councillors Rob and John to discuss the next stages of the project.

Rotherham Council and Housing came to look at the site to see whether they could support with the renovation work.

We have also had support from Community payback who came to complete the grounds maintenance.

The children have started their designs to share with our architect Ben Liddle and visited the site to gather more ideas and discuss who else could they invite to be part of the project, letting children lead the way empowers young people to make social change.
