Talk About Local trained a young woman Daisy Cooper, who was a future jobs fund trainee with Peabody Trust, to create http://barnsburyliving.wordpress.com – ‘an online community centre for the Barnsbury area’. Based in the Priory Green Estate the website serves to connect local residents with updates of local news, events, social clubs and events, communal spaces and job vacancies. There are dozens of notices on the site for local people. Daisy went on to train people on other estates and help them find a voice online.
Daisy has now moved on and talk about local has worked with Peabody to train other local people to contribute to the website and find their own voices online, resulting in a new website for the Green Man Community Centre in East Finchley.
