I’m delighted to introduce Community Works; it’s the result of a merger between The Clock and Thirsk Community Care. The two charities have combined their staff, resources and services as part of their long term plan to become self-sustaining. The newly formed Board of Trustees see it as a time for ambition and are working towards Community Works being the leading voluntary organisation in the area.
Community Works’ vision is that Communities in North Yorkshire, particularly around Thirsk, are strong, resilient and vibrant and individuals in the community feel that they belong, are connected and live independent, active fulfilled lives. It will do this by increasing community resilience, improving social inclusion, improving well-being and increasing economic prosperity.
The year ahead will be a mix of challenges and opportunities which Community Works will embrace. Its primary focus will be to establish itself as a leading charity delivering high quality services, followed by planning and implementing new services to meet identified need. As its strap line says, it intends to ‘open doors’ for its service users in order for them to ‘unlock opportunities’ for themselves.
Come along to the Methodist Church on St James Green, to find out more on 6th April 2020 between 3 and 6pm.
Thank you for your continued support.
