Project Leads

Resources for Change was commissioned by Powys County council to develop Community Led Plans in four small- medium sized towns across the county, using a community development approach.

We worked with communities to research and prioritise their community needs, and this led to the development of practical Actions Plans for each locality. The communities have since gone on the prioritise the actions identified, and for the town of Newtown, the Community Action Plan was submitted as part of a successful application for the largest asset transfer of land in Wales, a new community group has been formed, and significant Lottery funding awarded to take the work forward.
