Work with us
We’re a social action charity that’s best at reinventing itself in response to people’s needs.
We help services, funders and systems find new ways to create deep social change. We’re willing to be bold, remove the box and bring edge-based solutions into the middle.
Our three strands of action in Coventry, Warwickshire and nationally are strengthening people, sparking community action and shifting power. Read more here.
In November 2020, we hosted a summit to help harness community spirit for the future with 98 people from all walks of life and a public sector summit for 68 professionals to help cement new ways of working accelerated by the pandemic into everyday practice.
We were keeping over 500 isolated people strong and well as the crisis struck. That number more than doubled to 1,232 during 2020.
We celebrated our 25-year anniversary in 2019 after starting life in 1994 as a drop-in in Spon End, Coventry for people with learning disabilities.
We learned who they were, what their dreams were and what they could offer and realised that way of working could help many others too. The answer to their problems lay in community, not specialised services.
Now we work with all kinds of people experiencing poverty, disadvantage and isolation.
