Ema Wilkes 31years old Founder/Director of Neo Community.
My vision and passion is to improve health and wellbeing, develop skills, opportunities, and reduce social isolation within communities whilst providing positive outcomes for people, achieved through a community centred approach, supporting people who want something to change or build by unlocking the tools and skills they already have, to make this happen. My aim was to develop a viable and sustainable community led business that is providing training, capacity building and employment opportunities for anyone.
