Better Together

Welcome to the Gloucester Community Networking website!


What is GCN?

Gloucester Community Networking (GCN), is a small ‘Not for Profit Organisation’, that facilitates the networking between individuals and organisations for the betterment of all!

Our Aims:

To 'strengthen' and 'build NETWORKS' between people in NEED and potential RESOURCES to meet those needs within the diverse communities in Gloucestershire.

Examples of how GCN can help:

Need: There has been an increased 'need' of people with Mental Ill Health due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Meeting this Need: GCN has built 'networks' of 'resources' by providing FREE First Aid 4 Mental Health training in our communities.

What's New

GCN now runs a monthly group called Forces Hub (FHUB) for Veterans, serving military personnel and their families, for all nationalities, where useful information can be shared regarding Gloucestershire's Armed Forces Covenant as well as training and employment opportunities. It is also a place to meet others in a relaxed and sociable atmosphere.

GCN also runs a monthly Wellbeing session, which is open to all members of the public and focuses on general wellbeing and mental health. The sessions offer resource and signposting services to promote wellbeing in the community.

Liuva's methods are so wonderful and inspriring in the way she manages to bring the beauty of the outdoors into your home for you to enjoy. Each creation is sure to be a real talking point with friends and family!
