Projects

As a charity supporting the voluntary sector, we are really well placed to know what is going on in our communities.

We’re working with groups on a daily basis, which means that we have an understanding of both the challenges and opportunities they are facing. As well as the more traditional support services we provide, we are also working on other projects and initiatives, both as a team and in partnership with other organisations.
