Developing Communities

For the first time this coming May Encounters will host a visit by group of older people who will have all the help that they will need to enjoy the Encounters experience outside of normal opening hours.

The visit will be arranged by Steve Andrews, an Outreach Worker for the Trust For Developing Communities.

The Trust For Developing Communities helps residents to identify local issues affecting their community and work together to tackle them. They had developed a model of community based engagement and support strong, inclusive and representative community groups, like establishing food banks and drop-ins; accessible community gardens & allotments; activity clubs for communities of interest, identity and place; as well as supporting neighbourhood events and festivals.
