What do we do?
We support community members and groups to play a full and meaningful role to develop their neighbourhoods, inform local service developments and celebrate their achievements.
How do we do it?
- By building skills in the community
We offer advice and training to ensure community groups are able to run effectively and can provide leadership in local affairs. This can include committee skills, planning, evaluating progress or whatever your group needs help doing.
- By building community organisations
We provide assistance to community groups to develop constitutions, targets and clear aims for community action and support them to achieve their goals.
- By building involvement
We support groups to become open, accountable, active and to develop links with other community organisations. In each locality our Team is responsible for supporting Community Learning & Development Partnerships, particularly in developing the community's role in them. These are the area forums for developing action plans to address local issues.
- By building equalities
We help groups to promote and support equal opportunities. We aim to ensure all sections of our communities are supported to be actively involved in deciding their own future.
