The City Council's community development programme is concerned with helping local people tackle local problems at a local level. By doing so, local people get the opportunity to meet other residents, make new friends, develop new skills and self-confidence and, above all, enable their community to become more effective in tackling community issues at an early stage.

The city of Worcester is made up of a number of neighbourhoods. Some of these neighbourhoods have a high percentage of families living on a low income or from an ethnic minority background and it is in these areas where the bulk of community development resources have been targeted.

Community Centres

The City Council developed a network of community centres across the city. These centres have been purpose built as multi-use venues where local residents can meet, organise private or community activities or events and where the various statutory agencies can give local residents easy access to their services. Many of the community centres are managed by Worcester Community Trust, while others are managed by the local community in which they are situated. In some areas, charitable companies have been set up with local people to both manage the centres and a range of community activities, especially for children and young people.
