Sustainable Communities

“The impersonal hand of government can never replace the helping hand of a neighbour. .”

Our approach

We work closely with authorities, agencies, and communities to help identify practical and well thought out sustainable solutions to local issues based upon local circumstances and aspirations.

We have extensive experience in working with communities and have developed and supported many volunteer groups, charities and social enterprises.

Our approach is to really listen and understand the aspirations of a community or authority and work closely with them to develop ideas that will solve problems both today and in the future.

Why people like us

We try to help people find a voice and we operate on a ’host and float‘ basis where we support a new group or individual until they have a capacity and confidence to use their new skills to manage a project or enterprise on their own.
