Community Work
#Here4OurCommunities
The Brunswick works to transform people’s lives by having a significant and positive impact on the communities we serve. We have expertise in community development, education, youth, digital learning, housing and more. This knowledge allows us to cater for all life stages. Our services are delivered by two operational teams: the Brunswick Community Connectors & the Brunswick Youth Service. They are backed by our successful management team, who ensure our communities direct everything that we do
Community Development has always been at the heart of everything we do at the Brunswick and the recent pandemic has demonstrated the need for our services now more than ever. During the Government Restrictions we consulted with over 1,500 residents & service users, this feedback has helped to identify the services we now deliver.
