Deepening and Broadening Restorative Practice Work, New Project Focussed in New Lodge and Hinterland
Chrissie Ma Siacais has written an article to the local New Lodge Magazine announcing the return of CRJI to the area and the areas adjacent. Chrissie outlines her vast experience of community work from working in community arts, justice work through to drug and alcohol addiction work, family support and advocacy on self harm and mental health issues.
Chrissie is delighted with the new challenge as she instinctively understands the complexities of communities and that no 2 communities are the same.
The New Lodge we hope will view her as an asset and tap into her in-depth experience and unique skill set. She will we are sure become a go to person on a range of issues from community safety in the broadest sense through to engagement with statutory agencies who ultimately have a responsibility to deliver on behalf of communities. Chrissie will be to the fore of this.
While explaining that Covid has been a barrier for her she has met with political representatives and a number of key community workers to get a sense of the area. She intends to step the pace of this up in the coming weeks and we look forward to hear hows she is getting on. So good luck Chrissie and welcome back.
