For more than a decade, central and local government have invited local people to take a more active role in managing their communities. This commitment continues, with more enabling legislation added each year.
On the downside, this weight of legislation can deter all but the most determined community group from taking action. Communities need to bridge the gaps between them, and the local government and other statutory bodies with which they interact.
PPCR can help bridge those gaps. Founded in 1989, we have a successful track record in working with communities, particularly inner-city groups, looking to take control of their own environments. Our consultants thoroughly understand what is possible in community control. We are positively committed to success through empowering local people. We appreciate that for such programmes to work, the whole community must understand and be behind them.
