Wirral Development Trust works with a range of partners from our main funders to acceredited bodies that we work with:

Prima Group

Prima Group is the new name for the Leasowe Community Homes/Pier Head Housing Group, whose first aim is charity status and secondly that of a housing association. Leasowe Community Homes is a stock-owning subsidiary of Your Housing Group, based on the Wirral.  In 1999 our homes were transferred from Wirral Borough Council to set up a unique non profit making local housing company.  Leasowe Community Homes funded Leasowe Development Trust (now Wirral Development Trust) from 2011-2017. Prima Group continues to do so and without their continuing support we would have been unable to continue our work.

Community Organisers

Community Organising is the work of building relationships and networks in communities to activate people and create social and political change through collective action.  The Community Organising process involves:

  1. identifying what people care strongly about in a community through 1-2-1 conversations
  2. building relationships and networks that are strong enough to support a long struggle for change
  3. developing community leaders and mobilising people to take collective action to achieve a shift of power and significant social change

The Company of Community Organisers is the national body established to support the training and development of Community Organising in England. Through members’ work with partners at a local, regional and national level, we are actively building alliances and relationships that will help us to fulfil our objectives.
