We work with them to identify gaps and to source resources whether this in in the form of local community assets – people, equipment, venues etc, or funding.  For example we worked closely with 52 community groups last year and our current work includes development support for  5 volunteer- led community centres.

Maundy Relief
Description:

Maundy Relief operates as both a “first port of call” and a “last resort” for many people. As a well-known organisation embedded in the local community, people contact us for a myriad of reasons: help with furniture, household goods and food; counselling for those in mental distress; welcome, hospitality and companionship for the lonely; advice and informal advocacy for those struggling with bureaucracy or those who slip through the net of statutory services; group activities and training for those ready to move on in their lives.

Our organisation is a community of staff, volunteers, regular service users (“guests”) and well-wishers in the wider local community. Maundy Relief has a profound influence on all the people who are involved with it at whatever level. We believe that change is best brought about by an immediacy of response combined with building sustained and holistic relationships with those we encounter.

Stonewall

We’re here to let all lesbian, gay, bi and trans people, here and abroad, know they’re not alone.

We believe we’re stronger united, so we partner with organisations that help us create real change for the better. We have laid deep foundations across Britain – in some of our greatest institutions – so our communities can continue to find ways to flourish, and individuals can reach their full potential. We’re here to support those who can’t yet be themselves.

But our work is not finished yet. Not until everyone feels free to be who they are, wherever they are.
