Our Community Connectors

The Community Connector role is to work with VCSE organisations and networks to understand the work they are doing and how it can be promoted and supported.

One of the aims of Thriving Together is to make sure the smallest voice in the third sector feels heard.

Community is at the centre of this work and we are trying to build capacity by growing effective partnerships. We work across the whole of Northumberland: we have been mapping the county; building our mailing list to improve communication in the sector; connecting with local organisations; attending, planning and delivering local events; building positive relationships – linking them with each other – to foster peer support, funding and collaborative opportunities, encouraging co-location and shared spaces wherever possible. We have also supported the continuing successful roll out of Northumberland Frontline.

We have met many wonderful organisations but there are still more that would benefit from connectivity and support, particularly at a time of such structural change and economic challenge.
