“By partnering with Shaping Portsmouth, we can give people living in the city better access to employment opportunities and health and wellbeing initiatives. We also want to empower the local community to make the changes they hope to see in their area.

Organisations such as Shaping Portsmouth are essential in helping communities to thrive, and we are proud to become a patron and work collaboratively with them. We want to learn from the community and will make sure we are listening to peoples voices to really understand how we can help shape the city and support it to thrive.

Portsmouth is a fantastic city that is diverse by nature; we want to celebrate this. Creating equal opportunity is high on our agenda and we look forward to working closely with Shaping Portsmouth to find ways to give everyone living in the city access to great opportunities.”
