We work with local people, community groups, public sector and third sectors on both short and long-term projects that will increase footfall, reduce empty shops, reduce business churn rates, increase civic pride, provide local jobs, give opportunities to youth, nurture new enterprise, harness local arts and culture, and help attract destination visitors.
We specialise in bringing stakeholders together to create meaningful and long-lasting improvements to high streets and the communities they serve. We embed ourselves in the community and work on both short-term and longer-term projects, delivering tangible results. Our method of harnessing local community groups and businesses to come together and improve their neighbourhood leaves a legacy of connections, skills and habits that will create positive impact over decades to come.
