Why we joined PlaceShapers

We joined PlaceShapers originally as the ethos behind the organisation fitted well with our beliefs about local community involvement and development. Since then PlaceShapers has grown into a much larger and influential version of that original intention that is really listened to and valued in the sector. The key to the on-going success is the ‘self-help’ nature of the organisation that encourages learning and visits between members that helps each member locally to support the communities they work in.
