People Can is...
an open invitation to everyone in our communities, neighbourhoods, villages and towns to work together and discover how we can make a difference to our lives and the places we live.
It is a:
community of people finding new ways to Work Together;
shared approach to solving problems and meeting needs;
hared set of tools and resources to get things done;
People Can make a difference.
Our approach is made up of four connected ideas:
A belief that we can make a positive difference to ourselves and our communities
A willingness to develop shared understanding
Creating spaces where everyone is equally part of the solution
Sharing our skills, stuff and space
the most powerful tool we have at our disposal is the belief that:
we can change the situation
we can be the difference
The most powerful tools we have working together are:
our willingness to listen and hear one another’s stories
Bringing together viewpoints to create good outcomes.
Sharing skills, stuff, spaces to to make a difference.
Volunteer Centre Bradford
The Volunteer Centres in Bradford and Keighley work to promote volunteering and to support local voluntary and community organisations across the district.
The Volunteer Centre is a good place to start looking for volunteering opportunities locally. They support people to identify volunteer roles that suit their skills and experience and match them with potential roles with Voluntary and Community Organisations and other not-for-profits, to support the crucial work they do. If you can spare an hour a month or more, then get in touch and see if you can volunteer your time or skills to help one of these organisations.
They also provide infrastructure support to any group that needs help to recruit volunteers, they share experience, supporting role development and good practice.
