Partnerships

Community Action:MK works in partnership with other voluntary and community groups, public sector bodies and private organisations to enable people to play an active part in their community. We also support some local voluntary sector partnerships, and are interested in getting groups to look at how they can work better with each other.

Working For Change

Community Action:MK works to influence the development of policies that affect the voluntary and community sector. We look to get the views of the sector and feed them into public service agencies so the sector has a voice.

In Your Community

Community Mobilisers (CMs) support people to have a voice in their community. They work with agencies and schools, enabling volunteers to play a role in decision making, signposting to training, and creating sustainable ways to contribute and enjoy life in the places they live.
