About us
What We Do

Together For Change is a charity with the aim of working with churches and multi-agency groups across the public and private sector in order to transform the communities of Coventry and Warwickshire.

The charity seeks to set up social enterprises and local projects that will support sustainable community transformation and tackle issues of systemic poverty in the poorest of communities.

In order to do this, Together For Change seeks to work in a strategic and coordinated manner with existing projects, sharing information and best practice as well as raise and distribute funds to enable projects to start or develop. Our funds are prioritised for the areas in the diocese that fit within the bottom 20% of deprivation.

We have a particular emphasis on supporting the following areas: 
 

  • Large Geographical Transformation - Working to support major capitol projects in ‘Priority Areas’ of Coventry and Warwickshire; namely Radford, Stoke Aldermoor, Nuneaton and Bedworth

 

  • Theme Focused Transformation – Our focus is to work on key strategic themes that bring proven impact such as;
    • ‘Family Link Workers’ Supporting schools and churches who engage with families in need
    • ‘Fresh Start’ Refugee and Migrant Support for individuals and churches seeking to support new arrivals
    • ‘Good Neighbours’ working with the isolated and at-risk elderly
       
  • Web-based Support - Resourcing and sharing information to help churches transform their communities, through the development of a website, interactive community transformation map, statistics, best practice and highlighting potential streams of funding for projects.

 

  • Training – Together For Change facilitate training opportunities that enhance the work of the churches.
