Where will I live The people

The ‘Where will I live?’ project was managed for the GA by Diane Swift and for CABE by John Meredith. A Sounding Board supported their work.

In each area seven schools were co-ordinated by a local project manager and their local CABE partner. The project process involved pairs of teachers from the same school. This provided mutual support and encouragement as well as great ‘weight’ within a school community.

Peter Wright, a Town Planner in Birmingham, provided an additional perspective through the Sounding Board. David Lambert (former GA Chief Executive) and Scott Sinclair (Director of Tide~, Birmingham) offered advice and informed the project’s thinking.
