Community Development

The Community Development Team provides help, support, and training to enable voluntary organisations, community and self help groups to provide the services and activities needed in the local community.

We can help you to:

  • Work with other groups and organisations to help provide what's needed
  • Get ideas into action by starting up a new group or organisation
  • Get the right skills to help your group work effectively and efficiently

We also provide a specialist Funding Advice Service - click here for details.

Our usual office hours are 8.30am to 4.30pm Monday to Thursday and 8.30am to 4.00pm Friday.

How much will it cost?
