Our organisation is all about people. While we provide homes for those who need them, we also put a huge focus on those you live there, helping to make sure they make the most of opportunities to improve their lives and communities. To that end, we offer a whole range of support, from skills training and courses, to funding and volunteering opportunities. Find out more about all the different things we do to enhance neighbourhoods and release the potential in our communities, in each of the topics below.
We run courses to support members of our community to learn new skills. Find out more here. We also have links with and support other organisations that help to develop skills and employment opportunities.
Community volunteering activities
Our volunteers help to look after our communities in a number of ways, by helping to improve our neighbourhoods and supporting the people who live in them. We wouldn’t be able to do this without the great work of our volunteers, so find out more about how you can get involved in your local community by volunteering. Visit the Community volunteering section of our website.
What’s going on in your community
We often get out and about in the local community for a variety of volunteering events, so keep an eye out for us! To see a full list of the events we have coming up, visit our ‘What’s On’ page.
We have two funds available to improve our communities: our Environmental Improvement Fund and our Community Fund.
Environmental improvement fund
An environmental improvement is something which improves the local area for the people who live there. To find out more, along with how to apply, visit our dedicated environmental improvement page.
Our community fund is there for projects or facilities that improve the quality of life for local residents. To find out more, along with how to apply, visit our dedicated community fund page.
