There are lots of ways you can get involved in your local community. From joining our board as a company director, or taking part in occasional phone and text surveys – it’s up to you. However you chose to get involved, we really value your views in shaping, providing and monitoring our services.
We support various groups who provide services, activities and events in the local area. These are usually free to join and accessible to all ages. Our community programme works on three basic principles:
Helping people to achieve – that means working ‘with’ people, not ‘on’ or ‘for’ them.
Right people, right service – that means taking a partnership approach to providing all services.
Value for money – that means choosing resident-led activities that are in demand, offer good value, and which we can support.
We’ve expanded the current programme to include our New Leaf Advice Centre and funded an employment, health and wellbeing programme supported by the European Social Fund (ESF).
