Our Community Development service is still active during this lockdown and here to continue and develop new work. We have access to online meeting platforms, can host community and resident group meetings and informal ‘get togethers’ online. If you would like to discuss your community with me, have an idea you would like to get off the ground, develop a support group like those mentioned above, hold an online ‘get together’ or anything else, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
