DescriptionWCEN is an independent charity which supports a developing network of community and faith based organisations and people who are working collaboratively to improve the way public services are designed, delivered and received.

It is led by local people who are elected annually at the charity’s Annual General Meetings. WCEN formed as part of the National Strategy for Neighbourhood Renewal in 2001 to enable communities to participate in public decision making processes.

The charity works through sharing and telling stories. Stories of why and how communities have formed and the challenges that they experience. Stories of how our public institutions have developed and grown and the complex nature of their roles and responsibilities. Stories of hope and optimism. These shared experiences inform and shape our thinking and doing.
