Welcome to GRCC

We are here to enable people in Gloucestershire to develop and enhance their communities in ways that work best for them.  We bring groups, individuals and organisations together to tackle the issues that affect their future, forge successful partnerships, make informed decisions and support them to run successful initiatives to build their community.

Use our website to tap into our independent, expert knowledge and practical support for the Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise Sector (VCSE) - including governance and finding funding.  Find out about community-led planning, community asset management, how we can help with affordable housing, enhancing local services and GRCC's support for older people and families.  Get in touch - and 01452 528491.
