Case Studies

“If Back on the Map can’t help you, no-one will.”

Since moving to the area in 2014 L has been a regular user of Back on the Map,

Initially attending the kids club as a single parent when her son was small. She now calls in regularly to the Carnegie Community Corner to keep in touch with staff and when she needs advice. L was recently made redundant and has found Back on the Map to be really helpful in signposting her to help and advice, in using the Net Zone, for help in filling in forms and for someone to talk to. She said she always recommends Back on the Map to local people, especially those new to the area. She commented to staff “If Back on the Map can’t help you, no-one will.”

"BotM is a good place to come for support."

Keri has lived in Hendon for five years and has had a fantastic journey Back on the Map

I moved to Hendon in 2015 with my partner when I was pregnant. We didn’t know anyone but fell in love with the house and decided we would just make it work. We, along with our daughter and pet rabbit, have been here for nearly 7 years now. I first got involved with BotM as a service user, in 2016. My daughter was quite young and they were offering sewing classes for mum’s where you could bring children along. I had unknowingly been suffering from postnatal depression and didn’t leave the house much at that time but I’ve always been quite creative and to be able to learn a new skill but not have to be apart from my daughter was a perfect mix for me.

"Back on the Map is a fantastic place to volunteer"

I get involved with as much as I can…

My name is Matthew Harrison, I grew up and and live in Hendon with my family. I have been involved with Back on the Map for around 7 years; working at the Community Allotment and undertaking training to become a lead volunteer on the East Rangers team, both roles have included several training courses in manual handling, health & safety and management of power tools.

My initial involvement was a progression from a previous volunteering role at a local youth project, also in Hendon. When it closed I joined the volunteering programme at back on the Map as I enjoyed being part of my community and wanted to continue making a difference where I live. Read more.
