Going the Extra Mile (GEM)
February Update from Pippa Jones
The Ancient Mariner in Coleridge's poem is marooned on the ocean and tortured as he sees "water, water everywhere" but none of it water that he can drink.
Data feels a bit the same to me at the moment - it’s everywhere - big data, data breaches, data savvy, data rich, data poor and of course data protection.

The GEM Project aims to engage with and support individuals within Gloucestershire who are currently dealing with circumstances that are potentially causing barriers to work and move these people closer towards education, training, volunteering or work, including self-employment.
