Episode 42: Breaking down barriers and the feeling of isolation through creativity and joy.

3 May 2024

Equity and equality for all!

Philip Carter Goodyear, Social Justice Lead and Head of Suffolk Family Support at Ipswich Job Centre talks to Tony Casement, Head of Creative Communities at The New Wolsey Theatre.

Philip talks about his belief and mission to re-engage families and individuals, who feel isolated through unemployment, with the community. Offering creative experiences for families is essential to well-being and a journey to feeling connected again.

Philip collaborates with many organisations over Suffolk (including The New Wolsey Theatre and Suffolk Libraries) and together they have curated a wide range of fabulous cultural experiences for his Job Centre clients. From panto and tours to Llamas in the office – he missed nothing out!

Thank you Philip for such a candid and interesting conversation.
