We believe that to create vibrant, strong communities we need to find out:
  1. What are the issues that concern people most?
  2. How we can help people and communities to address these issues?
  3. What is already working well in the area?
  4. What ideas do people have to improve their neighbourhood?
  5. What can we do to assist people in improving their area?
We do this by:
  • Gathering, studying and providing information and data about the area. For example, we can understand a lot about our area by looking at the Census.
  • Working with and talking to communities, our partner organisations and the people using our services.
  • Carrying out small research projects and evaluating the impact that they have.
  • Responding to and seeking new development opportunities to work together with statutory bodies, universities and colleges, social partners, the community, and public representatives.
