Community First

Our core business is providing infrastructure support.

Helping ‘frontline’ organisations to achieve their aims, through providing advice and information and business coaching and training, helping with monitoring and evaluation, including social return on investment, supporting networks and sharing good practice.

Assisting parishes and communities to take action for themselves and identify and meet community need through specialist advice focused on affordable warmth and energy efficiency, local community engagement and ownership, carbon reduction and climate change, community led planning and thriving community multi use centres

The range and variety of our work has given us a leading and grounded understanding of the challenges and opportunities involved in supporting local communities and we are keen to share our knowledge and expertise, working with you.

Increasingly our services have been purchased by the public and private sectors to help them engage, understand and communicate with the diverse makeup of their local communities.

Our vision is to help rural communities and voluntary sector organizations cope with their increasing responsibilities in ensuring the social, environmental and economic well-being of all their residents and users.

We encourage and support measures that provide for the present generation and also plan to meet the challenges of the future. We will be there to stimulate thinking, support the work of communities and help turn aspirations into reality. We provide a successful vehicle that helps bring the voluntary, public and increasingly private sectors together and are respected for our ability to enable collaboration, co-operation and partnership formation.

With a team of specialist and professional employees we are supported by an active Board of trustees, several volunteers, hundreds of members and selected associate providers. Together we can provide expertise and capacity where and when it matters.

Community First is a Company Limited by Guarantee (England and Wales) No: 2504158 and a registered Charity (703072)
