Community Builder

Tendring District Council (TDC) has been awarded £52,960 in a bid to develop stronger communities in the District.

The money is for a trial project – currently one of five being funded in the whole of Essex – and will be used to tackle a range of issues.

A Community Builder has been employed to work within communities that need assistance to identify strengths and weaknesses, what they can achieve for themselves, where they need help and what external bodies need to provide to support them.

It will involve discovering what capacity, skills and assets a community has and where those can be shared with others to bring about change and improvement.
