CommEnt was originally formed as a development trust in 1998, aiming to promote sustainable community development in the east of Bolton, Lancashire, by enabling residents to contribute to the development of their own neighbourhoods.

In 2010, CommEnt became a Community Interest Company, and now operates throughout the North West of England and further afield. Our objectives continue - to support organisations, groups or individuals and establishing effective links with other organisations to optimise the economic, social and ecological benefit of community-based projects in the region and beyond.

CommEnt is a small company but partnership working is an integral part of how we deliver larger projects. We also carry out consultancy work for larger organisations where it is consistent with our social and environmental objectives.

CommEnt is now developing new projects that can apply the organisation's strengths in project management, research, community consultation, securing grant funding, partnership working, governance and evaluation. Our Projects page has more information on current and previous work.
