The Market Place
We Care East Ren
Here at Voluntary Action community participation is at the heart of everything we do. This includes promoting local opportunities to get involved, giving residents a voice, and creating spaces for communities to come together.
We are always open to testing, learning and improving. We can all work together to explore new ideas that can make East Ren a better place to live.
We build safe environments for local people, groups and organisations; creating solutions to locals issues by working together.
We encourage East Ren wide conversations, supporting local people to share their stories and experiences and influence planning, design and delivery of local services.
We support local people in finding their way to get involved in the community. This can be anything from joining a group, volunteering or taking part in local conversations.
