Unlocking potential 

We're passionate about helping people achieve their goals and fulfil their potential.

In 2014/15, 5,820 residents stepped up and took part in community projects.

50% of participants were under 25 years of age.

We were inspired by 657 participants progressing into further training or jobs. Our activities are making an amazing impact and changing lives. But don't just take our word for it, why not watch our video (on the bottom right of this page) to see and hear from some of the residents we've encouraged?

We're interested to hear from innovators, organisations or partnerships who share our ambitions to expand award recognised community activities. If you'd like to find out more then please contact us.

We're a key partner in the national 'Give Us A Chance' partnership.  This consortium promotes the skills and employment services provided by organisations like us. We're committed to working with community and strategic partners to develop new programmes of activities, inspiring people through skills and jobs, community enterprise and health and wellbeing.
