Here at Community Ventures we specialise in working in partnerships and community engagement.  We have a track record of hosting, developing and delivering pioneering services tailored to meet the needs of communities, statutory organisations and business.

We apply our evidence-based approaches that focus on the strengths, skills and assets that lie within our neighbourhoods. With our guidance, approaches and experiences we can help you to create the conditions needed to reduce health inequalities and to transform disadvantaged communities into neighbourhoods that can venture into brighter futures.
