Our vision is that Scotland’s poorest communities should flourish.

We believe strongly that local people are the experts in bringing about change and building flourishing communities. We work with and alongside them, providing support in a variety of ways. We began our work in Glasgow in 2005, going on to support the development of what is now the Poverty Truth Community in 2008 and Faith in Community Dundee in 2010. In 2011 we began working with communities to support people leaving prison and now facilitate a network of local throughcare projects in Clydebank, the north of Glasgow, Inverclyde and Kilmarnock.

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world: indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.

We also work closely with other partners, both locally and nationally, to develop a range of particular projects, such as Tackling Sectarianism Together, Tackling Poverty Together, Reshaping Care for Older people, Interfaith Food Justice - connecting the voices and experiences of local people, faith groups and community groups with issues of national concern.
