We are delighted to present our 2021 Impact Report for The Shoebox Enterprises CIC!
Over the last year we have responded creatively to the challenges posed by the pandemic and transformed our small community cafe into The Shoebox – a thriving community hub!
Our friendly team of Community Connectors will have conversations with local residents in key neighbourhoods in Norwich to discover what matters to them, what they are passionate about and what they would like to do with others to help them flourish in community life.
The conversations will take place in a range of settings such as cafes, outside local schools, community events, door knocking and at The Shoebox. Some of you may have even had a chat with the Connectors already!
Feedback from the conversations will be shared with our funders including Norwich City Council and more widely with the community, local forums and colleagues to inform further learning and community development.
