About Us

Welcome to GL Communities, your number one source for community development, advice and resources. We're dedicated to giving you the very best in help and information, with a focus on community development, well-being and a money advice service.

Founded in 2008 and receiving its charity status in 2010, GL Communities has come a long way from its humble beginnings. GLC was a merger of three of the most successful of the neighbourhood projects in Gloucester but is now able to offer services all over Gloucestershire. We are thrilled to be able to turn our passion into work on the ground that creates change with local people.

We hope you use our services as much as we enjoy offering them to you. If you have any questions or comments, please don't hesitate to contact us.

We are delighted that The National Lottery Community Fund has recognised our work in this way.  Now, thanks to National Lottery players we will be able to broaden the range of opportunities available to vulnerable adults, parents and families.  This is important to us as ‘everybody deserves a chance’.
