Community has signed a new organisational partnership with the Bevan Foundation. Community is the first of three new partners, working with the Bevan Foundation to increase equality, prosperity and justice.
Assistant Secretary General of Community, John-Paul McHugh, says: “We are keen to help the communities of our members flourish. By partnering with the Bevan Foundation we hope to extend our impact and open our doors to more workers.”
The Bevan Foundation has built an enviable reputation for setting the agenda, superb cross-sector convening powers, a high media profile and exceptional reach into decision-making in Wales. The new partnership will enable the Foundation to have an even greater influence on public policy while providing Community with a platform to share its vision for working people more widely.
“Like us, Community are focused on finding lasting solutions to create greater equality and improve people’s lives,” says Victoria Winckler, Director of the Bevan Foundation. “We’re delighted to welcome them as our partner and look forward to working together towards our shared goals.”
“Our work on equality is all about ensuring that everyone, no matter what their income or characteristics, benefits from good health, good education, secure housing and a safe community,” says Victoria. “We are currently developing an exciting programme of activities with Community – watch this space.”
The Bevan Foundation is Wales’ most influential and innovative think tank. It develops lasting solutions to poverty, inequality and injustice and helps to improve people’s lives.
