Our Community Builder programme works with communities across Uttlesford to identify issues which matter to them and co-develop solutions.
Our aim is to provide support to anyone in Essex wishing to set up a Men’s Shed. Delivered in partnership with Maldon and District CVS.
Our DCMS funded project is equipping a number of homes in West Essex with technology to enable people to stay in their own homes.
Our mobile cafe brings a community hub to outlying towns and villages, providing an informal way to get to know your neighbours and access support services.
