Knowing and seeing everyday here in the community all the practical positive differences that SCAF has made over many years. Having the support and commitment of local residents to continue working together for our community, also seeing how it has brought people together from all sections of our community working together to achieve common goals.

One piece of advice – difficult to just say one – but never assume you know what the real issues and concerns are for the whole community (some issues are very localised)- ask them, gain their support and encourage people to be actively involved. Always be open and transparent and realistic about what can be achieved – you can’t solve all the problems – some you can just work on really hard to try and improve a little. Give everyone the empowerment and opportunity to raise their concerns and plan areas of work & do something about it for themselves!
