About Us

Transforming Communities Together Tyne to Tweed is part of the Together Network, a national network of faith-based charities dedicated to working locally with churches, individuals and organisations.

We support local churches, engage communities and get involved in neighbourhoods through practical action, by helping to develop a wide range of projects. We are supported by the Church Urban Fund (CUF) and the Diocese of Newcastle to create faith-based social action in communities between 'Tyne and Tweed'.

We believe that the local church is at the heart of making a difference, and can contribute to creating a flourishing and thriving neighbourhood life for everyone. At the heart of everything we do is something we call ABCD, or Asset-based Community Development. It’s a way of working that makes the most of the skills and capacities from the local area:

  • Identifying and channelling local skills, gifts and resources
  • Building relationships – it’s what we are good at!
  • Recognising the unique worth of each person

Together we can all make a difference and bring about change for the common good
