Community Development


Our service values community development approaches and our work is underpinned by Community Development National Occupational Standards (CDNOS). They are incorporated within our programmes and training. Our team supports organisations to use these approaches within the work they do.


Community Development learning takes place when individuals and groups/organisations come together to share experience, learn from each other, and develop their skills, knowledge and self-confidence. It is a developmental process that is both a collective and individual experience, based on a commitment to equal partnership between all those involved to enable a sharing of skills, awareness, knowledge, and experience in order to bring about sustainable desired outcomes."
