Who we are
GL Communities works in large social housing estates in Gloucestershire to develop the social and economic wellbeing of both individuals and communities. We are seen as an anchor organisation by groups and individuals wanting to create a better future for themselves and the community. We recognise and support the gifts, skills and talents of the communities we work with. We make space for people to grow, to be more than they are now. We facilitate the connecting of residents, local business, and local services in becoming thriving and aspiring communities. We support local community development, advice, education and training activities to increase residents’ confidence, skills levels and reliance - particularly for people who live with ill health, disability, caring responsibilities or unemployment.
We work across four key themes: Advice and Advocacy; Employability and Education; Community and Economic Development; and Social Inclusion and Wellbeing
