Our Ethos

The ethos underlying our work is to identify and build on the existing strengths within a community; we believe in working on behalf of clients in a trusting manner whilst helping them to identify the ways in which they can increase and/or begin their involvement in the management, control and enhancement of local services, activities and facilities.

Methodology

Each client is allocated a CLS Project Manager/Director who has overall responsibility for the management and delivery of the project. Project Managers liaise with clients to identify, prioritise and update the regeneration aims on a regular basis and agree the programme of development and implementation accordingly.
