- develop tasks to take appropriate action
This is done by being a link between communities and a range of other local authority and voluntary sector providers, such as the police and fire service.The role often involves addressing inequality (cultural, health, economic or geographic).
Projects are often related to public health work and may include working on specific issues such as improving public transport, active travel and drug abuse, with specific groups such as homeless people, families with young children or ethnic minorities.
