How Do Communities Connect?

Real life challenges

Over the next 15 years the UK population will continue to age dramatically putting tremendous strain on the systems and services in all communities. We began a longterm project to understand how we can upskill citizens and to encourage people to connect with each other more, to support the overall needs of our public.

Real world strategies

Sarah began working within local communities to understand how to effect the changes needed for resilient cities and how to engage within a local network. This work is helping inform how we reframe our national programmes in the future.

Sarah was one of the first to run a pilot scheme for us. Her work has helped us really understand how to set up our projects within communities.
