Although we are an independent organisation we work in close partnership with housing, regeneration and voluntary organisations to ensure that communities are consulted on issues that are important to them, and in turn can influence policy development and decisions.

As an inclusive organisation, we have for many years been committed to involving underrepresented communities. We have developed and delivered projects aimed at increasing involvement from all local communities - enhancing Community Cohesion and enriching the knowledge, understanding and skill base of both our membership and the organisation as a whole. This enables us to further tailor our services to meet the needs and aspirations of Sandwell’s varied communities.
