People United's projects are both experimental and practical. We develop, test out and implement new ideas that enable individuals, institutions and public bodies to reflect, be inspired by and initiate positive change.
From small initiatives (such as seeding individual acts of neighbourliness) and creative ideas (our artist commissions programme) to ambitious long-term projects (whole town community connections), our work links with the areas of social capital and cohesion, social responsibility, volunteering and pro-social behaviour.
