What is Community Building?
Community Building brings residents and partners together to strengthen community connections, with the aim of reducing isolation and improving health and wellbeing. Having a sense of community unites us all and can make us feel we are a part of something greater than ourselves. A strong community enables people to stay connected, confident and encouraged. This is why it is important to continue working with each other!
Let me introduce myself,
My name is Lucy Bird and I am a Community Builder working in and around the Droitwich Spa area. I work with people to connect their interests and passions. I enjoy listening to people and collaborating with others to motivate and achieve goals! For example, I can talk to you about new ideas for your community, to connect contacts and bring people together for a cause. I am passionate about reducing loneliness and being someone that others feel they can talk to.

Droitwich CVS Network Meetings
We hold quarterly network meetings for local community groups and charities. These events are an excellent opportunity to find out what other groups are doing and share your own work.
You can bring leaflets, brochures and other shareable materials for everyone to look through. Held at the Old Library Centre, we provide refreshments and snacks for those attending. We encourage those interested to join us for our next meeting! We will release our next dates soon.
It doesn't matter if you're a volunteer or a paid member of staff, all are welcome to come along and meet other local people making a difference.
Do you want to volunteer?
Volunteering enables people to give back to their community and support organisations. Volunteering is an excellent way to gain more confidence, meet new people, gain or share skills and create positive change. The training and hands-on experience you gain while volunteering can help you learn new skills as well as build upon ones you already have. If you are a student, voluntary work is a valuable addition to you CV and helps future employers see your commitment and skills. There are so many benefits you get from volunteering and we have a varied list of opportunities for you to choose from. If you would like to know more information please let us know.
We also provide organisations with a platform to advertise their roles so if you'd like to share your opportunities please contact us:
