About Community Reach...

With almost 20 years experience in community regeneration and charity management, our senior team have gained a strong reputation for their commitment and passion to the locality. In addition the majority of the staff has worked together for ten years as members of a close knit team. Over the past 20 years our staff have been recognised for their work by being the recipients of several national, regional and local awards for their work in fighting poverty and in facilitating community regeneration, particularly in the west of Carlisle.

In October 2012, following an amicable separation from the organisation they had both founded and developed, staff determined to continue the work undertaken in those prior years through forming this new organisation; Community Reach. In 2013, with the change in legislation concerning charity law, we applied for, and were successful in becoming, registered as a charitable incorporated organisation.

Operating primarily in the west of Carlisle, Community Reach is recognised as a broad based community organisation offering three levels of support;

  • triage: which is aimed at crisis intervention
  • targeted: which focuses upon meeting known needs and desires
  • holistic: offering projects which aim to provide the underpinning and longer term sustainable support to the community

Our over-arching aim is to reach and impact positively upon all aspects of the life of the local community and ensure that all we encounter feel loved, accepted and needed within our integrated model of community development.
