As part our Strengthening Communities workstream, we work with new housing developments in Milton Keynes, to enable strong communities to grow.

We support residents and groups within Milton Keynes to connect with ongoing plans for growth, to ensure their voices are heard. We also work to communicate with citizens and the voluntary sector to support them to stay up to date with short and long term plans.

We bring people together and support them to take effective, collaborative action in their communities. View our past projects page here to find out ways we have been doing just that.

Our work work is underpinned by the community development principles. In practice, we:

  • Offer help to set up new community groups and projects
  • Make and foster connections between residents, voluntary groups and other key local agencies. Partnership working and collaboration are at the heart of our work!
  • We provide volunteering support and encourage people to volunteer in their communities and across Milton Keynes
  • We share information and resources about the key developments and encourage residents to have their say about the local plans, and consultations.
