Community Work & Projects

Our community development work supports local people, community groups and communities to address issues in their lives and communities and take action to change their situation.

 We do this by:

  • supporting people who face exclusion to have a voice and take part in decision-making on issues that affect them;
  • providing information, training and networking for community and voluntary groups to support them in their work;
  • resourcing networks that bring people together to identify local issues and work jointly to tackle them;
  • working with the whole community to identify local needs;
  • supporting the set-up of initiatives and projects that meet these needs and tackle disadvantage and social exclusion;
  • policy work to address issues that affect the people and communities we serve;
  • providing direct services in the community.
