Berwick MP Anne-Marie Trevelyan recently visited the Alnwick hub to meet Jane Coney and hear more about Bridge Northumberland’s work.

She also met local residents involved with the programme and heard how their lives had been changed by the support and encouragement they have received from Bridge Northumberland and the team.

The scheme, open to all Northumberland residents aged 16-66, aims to boost people’s confidence and help them improve and manage their skills and finances.

“I would encourage anyone struggling with lack of confidence or wanting to boost their skills to contact the team here.”
