Tom Kohler has spent 40 years connecting citizens of Savannah, Georgia to one another. As Co-ordinator and Executive Director of Chatham-Savannah Citizen Advocacy has introduced people who have an established place in community to people with disabilities who have found themselves placed on the margins of community life. Together these people explore how their relationship can change their lives, and impact the life of their community. In this video Tom shares skills that can be developed for this connecting work.

The BREXIT STONE SEEKS A PERMANENT HOME
On the morning of 24th June 2016 a poem called BREXIT was born out of a raw emotional response to the EU referendum result. The poem does not take any side but hints at something disturbing.
Subsequently, ‘Carving through Borders’, a stone-carving collective from Shropshire and mid-Wales, chiselled these prophetic words into a slab of Cambrian Sandstone by way of articulating protest. The stone stands nearly six foot high and, coming in at nearly a quarter ton, is a weighty epitaph to UK stability and prospects for our continued peaceful existence.
Now this Stone needs a home where it can be seen freely by as many people as possible so that it can continue to give voice to the ongoing debate. It is there to give the message that we are better together than apart.
On Saturday 12th October, 12-3pm, The Brexit Stone will be officially launched at Carving Through Borders, Upper House, Knucklas, Knighton, Powys, LD7 1PN. Drinks, nibbles, throat pastilles available. Contact us via www.carvingthroughborders.eu for further information.
A warm welcome to all,
School team and community still recovering from the Grenfell Tower tragedy. The MAP was facilitated by Colin and Derek – the story was told, the future planned. Amazing levels of resilience, energy and enthusiasm to get it right. Such work always strengthens inclusive education for all. MAP is a process that features large in our inclusive education training and broader training on inclusion.
