In our Community Development work we foster community led public and private partnership projects.

In the west of the city we work with some amazing local partners, including The Hangleton and Knoll Project who deliver all the community development and engagement in their ward.

"The West is full of established communities with a history of working together. Our role is often to build on this by drawing in external resources and services"

"The community development work in the Portslade and Portland Road area is always varied, whether it is with Friends of Parks groups, local forums or food banks, the community works so hard for each other that it makes the work I do with residents a pleasure. If I can assist them with their aims in any small way then I go home happy"

"My role in the west is to connect older, isolated and sometimes vulnerable  people to a range of different sources of support and information, which I find both rewarding and a great privilege."

We recently reached out on the ground through door knocking and visits in  North Portslade & Mile Oak to make people weren’t too isolated through the pandemic and you can see what we found out and what we are now doing in this report by Amy.
