Partnership working is a core value of our organisation and we carry out a range of work from support to small groups through to being a key player in partnerships with larger organisations.
LOOP - Looking Out for Others Potential
Our Neighbourhood Connectors motivate and support Local Residents, to get involved within their own community and work together help create caring and connected neighbourhoods. More neighbourliness on every street will lead to a sense of belonging for everyone and help us create a better life for us all.
Neighbourhood Connector identify community minded residents in their neighbourhood and support them in becoming volunteers using a sympathetic approach. They;
- involve others in conversations, activities, and relationships
- build on the strengths and potential of the people living nearby
- networking into wider support
- grow and nurture volunteers
- learn what people care enough about to come together to change
- discover local skills, interests, ideas, connections and inventiveness
- have fun, make new friends
