New relationships and support structures are made every day, with users of our services feeling more involved in community life.
~ Influence and Shape ~
As a former Neighbourhood Management Team, and from our wealth of experience in the voluntary sector (with specialism’s in education and childcare and community development) we understand the importance of influencing and shaping change within communities and the structures set up within them. Although we are excellent at being reactive to the hardships and problems faced by our community and providing opportunities to improve the lives of those facing them we strive wherever possible to influence greater social change within our areas to prevent these hardships. We sit on a number of committees in the area and have developed a number of stakeholder meetings of our own to try and change the way pubic sector departments, as well as other charities and communities themselves, operate to give people the best chance possible of improving their lives.
