Community led services

Local grassroots community groups are best placed to understand the challenges in their local neighbourhoods and how to reach those who need their help. Building on existing community assets, voluntary; community and faith sector organisations are providing services in their communities which can:

  • make services available in local places where people need and will access them
  • provide opportunities for people to gain skills and confidence
  • help older people to maintain their independence
  • help people to socialise with others and feel better as a result, such as providing community cafes and lunch clubs
