Working together in partnership.
Space2 is a small but robust charity with a dynamic, pro-active staff team and a skilled and committed Board.
We’re constantly seeking out new opportunities and responding to the challenges. And the current economic climate is indeed a challenge. Orion has been one of the responses.
The Orion Partnership is a consortium of four like-minded organisations, Space2, Feel Good Factor, Shantona Women’s Centre and Zest, based and working in East North East Leeds, sharing common values and organisational cultures and with almost forty years direct experience in our communities. Formally launched in October 2012, the partnership has been twelve months in the forging, and has included a number of joint events for staff and trustees including a Staff Away Day and a Trustees Twilight session.
Orion is committed to working with young people who are setting out on their career paths, supporting them to gain experience and a track record. In 2012 we held a competition for final year Design students at Leeds Metropolitan University to create our branding. The winning design is at the top of the page, designed by Dane Chadwick.
Orion has a grant from the Lloyds TSB Foundation to run a three year project, Modern Living supporting older people to become better socially connected through improved IT skills. This can be anything from using mobile phones and learning how to record TV programmes through to computerised GP signing in screens, bank machines and internet shopping. Read More…
