Projects and Programmes:

Our evolving range of Projects and Programmes are the glue that knits us together, keep us striving for a better future and making brilliant things happen in our community. These always have our community at their heart, whether thats designing specific programmes based on community need or supporting our community to make their ideas happen and more often that not a unique combination of the two.
