Our community engagement projects involve the development and creation of groups, workshops and training that community members and volunteers can access to either socialise with others in the community, learn new skills through our voluntary and training opportunities, access CV and career guidance and encourage our children and young people to take an active role in learning and planning for their future as well as being involved in community events.
