Community Explorers

Action Together has listened to what our members are saying about opportunities to network locally and have organised a series of monthly Community Explorers gatherings. The purpose of these gatherings is to enable voluntary, community, faith and social enterprise (VCFSE) sector groups and organisations within local communities to network with each other to enable them to find out what each other are doing, what else is happening in your area and how Action Together can support you.
