Our 5 clear goals:
Engage: those who lead and develop multi-purpose community centres in order to share lessons learned and best practice.
Inspire: a new approach to community development by sharing ideas, thinking big, staying positive and keeping an open door.
Motivate: change by constantly and consistently reviewing what we do so that we can demonstrate impact.
Equip: those responsible for community development with the skills, know-how and values to increase participation and foster strong sustainable communities.
Support: community centre leaders by facilitating routes to a range of expertise and peer-to-peer support.
We achieve this by:
Developing benchmarks to measure ourselves against so we can demonstrate impact and prove we deliver high quality demand-led services.
Maximising resource utilisation across the network to foster more effective ways of working.
Sharing lessons learned and implementing best practice to facilitate community development, which is based on reflective practice.
Conceiving and implementing an innovative apporoach to community developmet that builds skills and create routes out of poverty and social and economic isolation.
Working together to actively avoid the duplication of services and establish strategic partnerships and joint-fundraising, income generation and cost-saving initiatives.
