helping more organisations work collaboratively
Gozie Joe Adigwe
New Buddies Network Officer
Hello, I’m Gozie - the New Buddies Network officer for Engage Renfrewshire. My role is focussed on working with ethnic minority people in Renfrewshire to support inclusion, community cohesion and celebrating the diversity of the area. I’m passionate about helping ensure that certain groups have access to good quality health information, learning and employment opportunities and enjoy the rich heritage of Renfrewshire. At Engage Renfrewshire we support over 400 community groups. My aim is to bring more ethnic minority groups into the heart of Engage so they reap the benefits of being part of the network.
I’ve worked in the voluntary sector for 13 years, supporting people living with sight loss, forming collaborations with new organisations and adding to some of the understanding about managing diabetes, eye care and mental health. My aim is to reach all Renfrewshire residents and be able to link up, where relevant, to the excellent work that’s already happening in the area.
