Forever Manchester’s very own community builder, Helen Smith, shares her community building secrets and home comforts with Housingnews.co.uk.

Helen is one of the first community builders in the UK, having been appointed as part of Forever Manchester’s pilot scheme to roll out the asset-based community development, and reveals all about the inspiring people she meets and enterprising projects that she helps to get off the ground in the interview.

“The most success for me is in the stories told by residents of the personal impact that being involved with our work has had on them. Someone telling you that their mental health problems have improved since being involved in a project you play a role in is the biggest success I could ever hope for.”
