We know that we can’t do everything ourselves and that often communities and other organisations are better placed to deliver certain projects and activities. We welcome ideas, projects and services from others that help people obtain and sustain jobs, aspire and achieve, improve their health and wellbeing, manage their finances effectively and transform communities.



We send out calls for projects that we are willing to part fund and these are based on where there is evidenced need or gaps in provision. 

A lot of great ideas also come completely out of the blue and we welcome speculative project ideas that can make a real difference for our communities. If you want to propose a project please speak to Tim Wotton, Partnerships and Funding Manager on 01736 334 933.

Some of our current partners helping us deliver great work in our communities can be seen below.
