We do things differently


Our community and neighbourhoods team share their annual report to shine a light on how we're working together to support our community with the rising cost of living.

Building on the foundations set with our community and partners during the pandemic, we’re tackling food poverty, launching new green projects and hosting new health and wellbeing initiatives.

Our We do things differently annual report reveals:

  • how we’re creating new opportunities
  • how we’re adapting our services
  • and details about new programmes and activities run by and for our community.
