Aga joined us in February 2020 as a Development Manager to project manage our 'Our Neighbourhood' initiative. Aga is truly passionate about community-led action, she enjoys working with local people and helping them regain their voice, become more active citizens, take charge and lead the change they want to see happen. Aga is a skilled facilitator and mentor, with an interest in community engagement, community capacity building and co-production. In her previous role, as a Community Programmes Lead at a CVS in Essex, she motivated residents to organise themselves and nurture social change. She’s experienced in championing grassroot initiatives and supporting local people in developing their own ideas and building their own communities. Aga has also explored and practiced an Asset Based Community Development approach, which she’s now committed to in her community practice.
