Advice and Support

We support voluntary and not-for-profit groups to help them to operate more effectively. We also run a range of projects to give local communities a helping hand.


Facilitating and Networking

We can support your forums, workshops and events by providing trained, experienced facilitators. Having an external facilitator can make group meetings and events easier, particularly when the subject matter can be controversial or where there is conflict.
