Partners, friends and allies

We work with people who care about preventing problems for good. We work with people who believe people and communities are resourceful and capable.

Our key project, Ignite, partners with WM Housing Group (Whitefriars)

Public sector cuts are putting our service under pressure because more tenants are turning to us when problems aren’t getting picked up elsewhere. My best hope is that Ignite will improve and redefine our relationships with customers and other services, clarifying and redefining the skills our staff need.

And Coventry City Council

Faced with rising demand and an unprecedented reduction in local government funding, it is easy to say that ‘people and communities will need to do more for themselves’. I believe that Ignite’s approach offers a big chance to show how this might actually be done.
