Community Development Support

We help projects, ideas or organisations grow and flourish.

We support community groups and projects  across Scotland and Wales – and share ideas with people beyond these places. For us, community development support is about empowering, encouraging and resourcing communities to lead the way in creating transformative change.

We can help you build connections, navigate challenges and opportunities, research, plan and consult. We've helped community organisations like Support Choices and Mind Waves get started and become sustainable, from business development to building community connections.
