CLARE CIC, (Creative Local Action, Responses and Engagement) is a social enterprise that provides support to older people through a community development social work approach. The model evolved from community engagement carried out by the Mount Vernon Community Development Forum over several years.
CLARE’s aim is to support people to achieve a better quality of life through relationship building, connecting the person to effective sources of support, recruiting and developing local volunteers, and co-producing new supports in partnership with the community if they do not already exist. CLARE recognises the capabilities and assets that people possess within communities and promotes the potential of networking, positive engagement, and collaboration for innovative community grown solutions.
