Social Action Projects

To work together with key stakeholders to support organisations and individuals to bring about social change for the benefit of their communites of need, interest and geography. We will provide opportunities in accessing capacity support, funding and training to support communities.

Research & Consultancy

Our research aims to apply mixed methodological approaches to evaluate, measure and review areas of community engagement, learning and development. Our approach intends to incorporate participatory research methods, developing a community of practice, alongside implementing evidence based praxis which supports our ethos of social mobility and co-production.

Education & Learning

To provide learning and training opportunities to all members of the community to improve their well-being. We will support growth, development and toolkits for continued success. This will include formal training opportunities with nationally recognised qualifications, voluntary or work based experience and employability skills inc confidence. We will provide self-help sessions to address specific needs.

Community Events

Evidence based research shows that targeted community events such as International Women’s Day and the Community Big Lunch create greater community cohesion and community sustainability through co design approaches.
