In 2014 Meadow Well Connected celebrated 20 years of work in the community


Meadow Well Connected is a safe, welcoming place where local residents can come and meet new people and gain new skills to help our community thrive.

Our purpose is work positively with local people to help create a thriving community that's a great place to live, work and play.

We believe that everyone has the ability to reach their full potential and our job is to put the right support in place to make this happen.

Our staff team is dynamic and connected to our community – with 7 of the 17 joining the staff team through a volunteering route. We work alongside 55+ volunteers and what we all have in common are our values.



We seek to build trust amongst residents, clients, staff, volunteers and stakeholders by being honest and leading by example.


Our services will be accessible to residents and we will remain open and accountable to our stakeholders.


We are responsive to the needs of the local community and will adapt our delivery to reflect change.


We will continue to find creative solutions to problems and build creativity into our approach as this encourages the engagement of our community.
