Jaqueline Atkinson is the Unlock Worker based on the Town End Farm Estate in North Wearside, Sunderland.
Jaqueline started her Unlock work at the beginning of March 2015 and spent her first few weeks getting to know the locals and the area.
She is mostly based at the dissused and decommissioned church of St Bede's, at the heart of the estate, where she has facilitated the local community association (TEFRA) in creating a chapel and is providing regular short times of reflection. In a community that 'doesn't do church' Jacqueline has also established a holiday club, a local community choir and a packed out Christingle service. From September 2017 her work has included FAB (Faith at Bedes) which runs for most of the day on Fridays including work with young parents and carers, an after school club for 5-11 year olds and a Bible study group.
During School holidays jacqueline and members of the community usully run 'The Ark' holiday club sessions. Contact Jacqueline for details.
Jacqueline is comming to the end of her time working for Unlock and local people will be carrying on with the groups that she has started.
