Trisha Bennett

Community Development Coordinator

I've been a freelance Consultant and Trainer since September 2004 and have undertaken a wide range of Consultancy and training contracts across the country. These include running very successful “Introduction to Community Work Skills” courses for a wide range of participants and consultancy and training for Community Matters on management of community buildings and complex governance issues. My other work has included tenant participation, team building and organisational development for a range of organisations in the statutory, voluntary and community sectors.

Since 2013 I have supported this Big Local project - now called Whitley Community Development Association.
