Southern Brooks Community Partnership
Our main priorities are:
· Working with children and young people
· Helping families
· Building Community Capacity
· Working with Older People
Community development is about working with local people to help them identify issues that concern them and to find local answers to local issues.
Priorities for our work are supporting young people, young families, providing opportunities for people to work together through community arts projects and building up a strong community sector. The project offers hands on support. Often community development workers can only support a process – facilitate bringing together a group of people, provide a time limited support that helps people organise themselves.
While the project believes firmly in people taking responsibility and in empowering people, we are also able to go one step further – to provide a management framework when needed that enables things to happen.
