Community First is about meeting the needs of communities, groups, organisations, business and people.
We strive to be a force for good by offering a wide range of support and services to local communities, groups and organisations.
We help those who help, volunteer and support their communities.
Our priority is to empower individuals, by supporting them to develop skills and knowledge and as a result of their learning and experiences increase in confidence in their home, work and community lives.
The idea for Community First came to mind in 2015 when we began to be approached by individuals and local organisations who were being supported by the good Samaritans and volunteers who ran them. Because of their self-identified lack of digital skills, they felt they were not being able to fully benefit the organisations they were supporting. Something as simple as emailing, sharing information or reaching their most isolated members was an area that was causing great concern. This was a need we could see and luckily one we could most definitely meet.
We then began being asked for similar help but on a commercial level by small and start up-businesses.
Because we wouldn’t take any kind of payment, we started to receive boxes of sweets, biscuits and bottles of wine. Whilst this was very generous, it wasn’t too good for our waistlines or general health! So when we were offered a donation towards future support we might give to others, a sort of Pay it Forward idea, CommunityfirstUK was formed.
We went on to register as a Social Enterprise limited by guarantee in 2016 where any profit our organisation makes goes back into other projects allowing us to support more people and organisations, not just with digital but with needs they have that we can help with.
Our motto? SEE A NEED, MEET THAT NEED
