Taking part in local action can strengthen feelings of community cohesion, generate a greater sense of pride and purpose and improve wellbeing.

“With hundreds of women and children supported through our domestic abuse support service DAWN each year, we are delighted to be able to offer the Survivors Network: a peer led network to build confidence, skills and offer support to families. Thank you to Worcestershire Community Foundation for making this vital work possible!”

Faith Sanderson CEO of Worcester Community Trust

“I wanted to say a massive thank you for facilitating Thursday’s brilliant Royal Visit. It was excellent and such a privilege to attend. We got a huge amount out of the day and equally from the networking, which was invaluable, it seemed that everyone managed to do this prior to lunch so they seemed to scoot off quickly once HRH went for lunch. However, for us it was really great to make contacts going forward. It was a momentous day, perhaps a once in a lifetime event and just a huge thanks from all of us at Springfield Mind.”

“I would like to say a huge thank you to Worcestershire Community Foundation for their very generous grant which has gone towards enabling us to carry out our community delivery and befriending services during the pandemic to the people of Evesham and the rural vale. We would certainly not have been able to do all we have done without your support.”
