Community Development

Silver Arch FRC Community Development programme supports the projects to provide services within the community context and to work with people to influence, change and exert control over the social, political and economic issues that affect their lives. The Community Development has a collective and community focus rather than a response to individual problems.

We run programmes and activities in the Tyone Community Centre and in our office space in Silver Street. These include Community Education programmes sponsored by the TETB through tutor hours, the Community Garden project, the After-Schools service. We collaborate and work in partnership with other agencies to assist families in accessing other services in the community.
