Our greatest focus is on the needs of the individual - helping them to overcome barriers and fulfil their potential. Where possible, we link personal development with community development – delivering projects that support local groups; bring different ages together; and increase pride, wellbeing and community resilience.
For adults, we offer training and voluntary opportunities that get people active, develop new skills and encourage local people to meet others from their community. Our projects often encourage people to grow their own food and get closer to the natural environment – both proven mechanisms to deliver health and wellbeing outcomes.
We work with local authorities, contractors, and health partners, social and private landlords to tackle fuel poverty across multiple communities. Having a warm home is one of the most important influencing factors of having a happy, healthy life. A cold home can lead to ill-health and depression for people of all ages.
