Community Development

Support from our team

As Glossop’s community wellbeing charity, our focus is upon encouraging rich, diverse expressions of community life that improve the health and wellbeing of the community.

Our Asset Based Community Development approach (ABCD) involves recognising and celebrating the existing contribution of individuals and community groups, whilst seeking to provide opportunities for others to move forward and be part of positive change.  

Intrinsic to our approach is building capacity. To do this the Bureau supports and signposts groups and individuals to explore training and funding opportunities.  For any groups looking to establish new governance structures, the Bureau signposts people to its partner, High Peak CVS, who can guide them through this process.  

Our latest Community Development Bulletin is available here:
