People Build Communities
The title of our Strategic Plan “People Build Communities” is carried forward from our 2015-2020 Strategy. It is a concept we strongly believe in and as a concept, it is something we experience every day, within our work and is based on the following key points:
• Bricks and mortar (buildings) are important to invest in, as they allow for delivery processes to be more comprehensive, but without people buildings will remain empty.
• The community sector in East Belfast needs to collaborate more in all that it does, recognizing our strengths, our weaknesses and the opportunities we have ahead of us.
• We must exploit the opportunity to work with our funders, our elected representatives, Government Depts and other statutory agencies in a meaningful, collaborative and transparent way that benefits everyone’s agenda.
