Communityworks is distinctive because we meet the needs of the entire community from pre-birth to 99! We have a number of partnerships that enable us to achieve this. BBC Children In Need fund our children’s work for 5-13s supporting families with older children. (Funded until April 2023) Children In Need also fund a Youth Project called Ignite which we deliver in partnership with HIVE and St Augustine’s Church. Clearly our partnership with Bradford Council who now provide the East Area Hub (formerly Children’s Centre activities) which have an impact on families with children is very important and we are working with them to reinstate some parenting programmes. Bradford Council fund our Friendship Centre which funds our work with older people in the area. The transition arrangements for children between Communityworks and local primary schools ensures that children have the best start to school. The Benefits Advice partnership with Family Action ensures that people are able to access good quality advice at Communityworks. We are also delighted to be funded by The Big Lottery who are supporting our work to help tackle loneliness among older women of SE Asian background - Nani Ji.

We are a key partner along with The Anchor Project in delivering environmental initiatives for local people ranging from plant potting sessions to the garden competition to community clean ups. We are also working very closely with The Friends of Peel Park, supporting the café and making improvements for play equipment to encourage greater community involvement in the park. We try to support and organise events for families in the park too. We are also working together with JU:MP who are all about encouraging children to become more active. Find out about JU:MP
