New Locality Connectors for Your Area

Richard Poole and Tonya Kingham, would like to introduce themselves and the new role as Locality Connectors for your area. Tonya covers the area of Wellingborough and Rushden while Richard concentrates on Corby and Oundle. There are six of us who cover the whole of Northamptonshire. Locality Connectors are people who connect vulnerable children, young people and their families in their local community with activities and organisations that can help improve their quality of life and well-being.
They provide information, insight and guidance to the Children First Northamptonshire teams on what services, groups, networks and activities are available locally and across the county, which may assist children, young people and families in maintaining independent lives. This could also help prevent their circumstances deteriorating any further in the future, to a point where they may need a higher level of support.
They will also aim to support and assist community groups and networks to develop new activities and/or maintain existing activities through a variety of means such as brokering and negotiating support from partner organisations and agencies.
Please feel free to contact them for more information at or if you would like them to arrange a visit tkingham@childrenfirstnorthamptonshire.co.uk Tel: 07920 361820 or rpoole@childrenfirstnorthamptonshire.co.uk Tel: 07920361818
