Strategic community services
We strive to do this by empowering local communities, communities of interest or identity and communities organising activities around specific themes or initiatives.
The team aims to strengthen the capacity of local people as active citizens through volunteering, community groups, organisations and networks, therefore enabling them to shape and hopefully make a change in their communities.
We work to help people recognise and develop their ability, potential and to organise themselves to respond to problems and needs which they share. We support the establishment of strong communities that manage and use assets to promote social justice and help improve the quality of community life. Our ambition enables the community, our partners and agencies with whom we work to improve community cohesion and the quality of life for local people.
