GRCC is an independent charity that works within Gloucestershire’s communities to inspire, enable, and deliver community action. We work countywide to strengthen and develop communities to create thriving, sustainable places for local people to live and work in.


Support for organisations, individuals and communities

Our Community Development Team provide capacity building support, information, advice and training to VCSE sector groups and organisations of all shapes and sizes in Gloucestershire.

We deliver services to people living within Gloucestershire's communities via our Community Wellbeing Service.

The mental health and wellbeing charity, Independence Trust, is also part of the GRCC family. We provide a range of services that support individuals to strengthen their emotional and physical wellbeing.

Rural voice and representation

Alongside our countywide work, we are also Rural Champions. We specialise in rural issues, 'speak up for' and represent the voice of rural communities in Gloucestershire. We work under the umbrella of ACRE (Action for Communities in Rural England) as part of a network of 38 Rural Community Councils across England. Reporting directly to DEFRA, we jointly aim to create thriving, inclusive, economically active rural communities where people have access to the services that they need.
