Who are we?
We are a newly formed community-based team here at Lancaster City Council.
We are here to support you and help to connect you with the local services you need within the council as a resident, business, community group or individual and make the council more visible.
What are our aims?
- To bring Lancaster City Council closer to the people who live and work within the district, and to contribute to the council’s key ambition of supporting healthy and happy communities.
- To listen to your views and ensure you have the opportunity to have your say on how the council can improve its services.
- Support communities to engage with each other, learn about and promote all the great community work that is happening across the district.
We can help and support you
The Community Connectors are on hand to help you much as possible working with colleagues across services within the city council, or liaise with partner organisations on your behalf where possible.
We can help and support you with a range of projects such as setting up a coffee morning at a local church hall, running a community garden project, or establishing a residents’ association. We are here to help and support.
