An introduction to our work…


We deliver work that aims to develop confidence, knowledge, skills and connections between individuals and communities.

We do this by designing activities and projects that build on the innate expertise that already exists in communities (applying participatory methodology).

We pride ourselves on constantly learning and reviewing what works and what doesn’t through reflective practice.

We also understand that we don’t have the skills and knowledge to do everything and so we aim to collaborate and partner with other practitioners and organisations.

Some of our recent projects include:

Consultancy and Support
