HOW WE CAN SUPPORT YOU

Step one... Footwork collaborates with local partner organisations to help identify people like you – local social innovators with the direct experience to identify the obstacles that mean people feel unsupported or unsafe, without opportunities to integrate, or to be empowered to make change.

Step two... Our support might be financial, or include tools like training and advice – connecting you with others to share experience or providing specialist help to give your idea more impact. 

Step three... The individuals and groups Footwork supports together provide valuable knowledge and evidence about how to empower local people and build resilient places. You will be helping to raise awareness and influence how things are done in the future.
