Power through community
We believe that we can make our regions and our cities better, fairer and more sustainable places to live and work by bringing together diverse alliances of voluntary and community organisations, local authorities, social enterprises, unions, universities, funders and schools.
These alliances work in three ways to change the system and create better outcomes for our region:
1. Campaigns – we run collaborative initiatives that aim to achieve tangible social and political changes that improve the lives of people in the region.
2. Relationships – we strengthen relationships between our member organisations.
We achieve this through our facilitated peer networks and mentoring schemes.
3. Capacity – we work to increase the internal capacity of all our member organisations.
We achieve this through a matched skill-sharing scheme, secondments and job swaps, and our Anti-Leadership Training.
We are currently working in the North East of England to set up the Change Alliance: North East, or CAN-E. For more details, please read our CAN-E brochure.
