Building resilience and sustainability
Our project has a two-fold approach of Community Organising and Social Business. We aim to connect local people with each other and support them to develop solutions, in partnership with public and private bodies, that respond to local needs and that are sustainable in the long term.
During the pandemic we have focused our work more directly on resilience and recovery – so that we address the immediate health and wellbeing demands alongside the economic challenges ahead that have disrupted local jobs and the wider economy.
Our resident-led Community Development Trust, which will be launched later this year, will help residents to identify and support community enterprises, access training and job opportunities, and provide a framework for partners to broker their investment and intentions with the whole community.
