Community Development

The Trust’s Community Development team is in place to support people living, working or enjoying their leisure time in Thamesmead.

Our team offers a range of services and support for individuals, voluntary groups and strategic larger organisations using the model of a 'community anchor', which means we can play a variety of roles including:

• Providing local community services
• Building partnerships with other organisations to bring in new services
• Identifying and securing external funding to bring new services and opportunities to Thamesmead
• Advocacy, representing Thamesmead at Greenwich, Bexley and London forums and helping local people to have a say in local issues and services
• Supporting local community organisations through capacity building, training, governance, fundraising and networking
• Promoting community led enterprise, generating independent income whilst having a social, economic and environmental impact
• Marketing and promotion of local facilities, services, opportunities and events
• Recruiting training and placing volunteers within the local community
