Jessica went on secondment in November 2017 to Active Black Country as their Satellite club, Club Development and Inclusion lead. Initially the secondment was for 4.5 days a week due to a need for capacity within the ABC team until January 2019 and was then reduced to 2.5 days.
Jessica hit the ground running to ensure the Satellite Club project met the timescales and targets required. Her club development support involved answering general enquiries, facilitating Club Development plans and supporting a club to plan for an asset transfer. Alongside this, Jessica reviewed the current disability forum led by ABC, held a engagement day for local organisations to come together and supported with an Activity Alliance LEAD self-assessment day to understand how inclusive ABC were internally.
Jessica met all the targets and reporting deadlines for the Satellite club project. She also achieved all internal targets set by ABC around club development and inclusion. Jessica was kept on for an extra 6 days post contract to support with the delivery of the engagement day and subsequent plans for future inclusion work.
