Connecting Communities

connecting-communitiesConnecting Communities was an initiative by the OCO in 2009 to recognise and celebrate examples of community-based programmes and projects which have a positive impact on the lives of children, young people and their families.

Connecting Communities was designed based on the views and opinions of children, young people and their parents about what is important for them in community life. It followed extensive discussions with different voluntary and community groups working at local level to improve children’s lives.
