The National Communities Resource Centre empowers people to tackle local issues, take control and overcome issues of disadvantage. The training and support we provide equips people with the knowledge, confidence and resources needed to help improve the livelihood and wellbeing of themselves and others in their community. The focus of our work is on: • Tenant Empowerment – We deliver training for Housing Associations and Local Authority tenants aiming to develop their ability to scrutinise their landlord and work collaboratively to tackle local issues. • Community Action – The training we deliver equips activists with the skills and knowledge to advise members of their community around themes such as health, wellbeing, finance, energy and environmental sustainability. • Supporting Young People - We deliver a training programme for disadvantaged young people (aged 18-25), helping them to build confidence, learn vital employability skills, raise aspirations and make strides towards brighter futures. • Supporting Families – Our residential programme provides a supportive environment for families to overcome issues of hardship and disadvantage by working together to strengthen relationships, communication and routine.
