Who We Are

Founded in 2006, Future Communities is a community engagement and consultation organisation that is volunteer-led and works across London to support community development and regeneration at neighbourhood level and to work in partnership with other community organisations, agencies, public bodies and local communities to achieve this. We are a non-profit organisation.

About

Our Mission

Develop

We develop projects, our own or in conjunction with other local communities. We also deliver training programmes, both online and offline, to broaden and develop levels and methods of access.

Utilise

We develop our own facilities and resources, and those of partner organisations, individuals and communities. We utilise new technology and social media to facilitate our work.

Build

We support individuals and community groups to build their communities; we also work with partner organisations to build people’s skills, hopes and aspirations.

About

Our Projects

Impact Bexley Project

A project funded by the Big Lottery, regarding the impact of regeneration in Bexley on hard to reach groups, such as people with learning difficulties, people with wellbeing issues and older people. This was a piece of action research focused around targeted workshops, focus groups and interviews.

Youth Voices Project

This was a research project which focused on anti-social behaviour and young people, as both perpetrators and victims of it. We worked with schools, community groups and the local council to facilitate focus groups and interviews. Several young people were active as volunteers on the project.

Parenting Programme

This programme formed part of a development project that delivered practical training sessions for parents, information, advice and guidance; referral to other agencies and individual advice and support. Partners included several Bexley schools, the council, community groups and parents.
