Support for “Mr Social Media’s” community work at I-Sourcer

Posted onPosted on 24th Feb

Mansfield-based business i-Sourcer has been giving up its time free of charge to speak to children across the East Midlands about the positive and negative elements of using social media for the past two years.

John Morley, of i-Sourcer, has reached more than 8,000 children in the process, and been rewarded with the Community Champion Award for Nottinghamshire at the East Midlands Chamber Awards.

Now this work has been picked up by another Mansfield company, Education Mutual, which has offered to sponsor John’s work in schools.

Education Mutual founder Gareth Childs said: “Having a young daughter, I was immediately struck by the impact John’s sensible approach to online safety delivers.

“It is real, tangible guidance that is often the first time young people, and their parents, have truly understood the perils out there.

“John is known locally as Mr Social Media to many schools and businesses, and we are happy to support the community work he’s doing.”

John added: “The work I deliver in schools on the back of my own social media knowledge is critical in talking with young people about the potential pitfalls.

“With the support of Education Mutual I can now reach more children whilst also running i-Sourcer. I am really grateful to Gareth and his team — it’s a superb gesture.”
