Rotherham Federation help to build stronger, more capable communities, which empower people to speak up and create their own solutions, New community-led groups are developed, and our communities will be happier places to live and work. The Federation and its network offer strategic stakeholders’ effective access into communities to identify need and deliver change that works. All community groups and community members can utilise the Federation’s network of members to access peer support and learn from each other, becoming more professional and better able to lead community change. In particular, more young, older and isolated people will become involved in community life and communities will work together to create shared solutions to Borough wide problems.
Rotherham Federation strives to be the organisation of choice for decision makers and community groups wanting to grow local communities and address local challenges. We have enhanced our reputation for work with social housing tenants by championing their needs but have also expanded to work with all types of geographic residents’ groups, and groups representing communities of interest. We will support communities to work together on shared issues, particularly those that reduce disadvantage and increase social inclusion. Where social cohesion and community engagement is weak, we will support communities to grow their voice and identity.
