About our Organisation

Evolve are a place based organisation based within Area 3 of Nottingham City. Our organisation is led by trauma informed research. We provide a local hub of activity to support and provide opportunities for people to help them change their own lives. We encourage people to become active citizens to improve their social, physical, and economic environments. Evolve work with local communities to formulate solutions to local issues. We offer support, advice, employment and skills, training alongside a full programme of health and well being activities, a community café, volunteering opportunities, holiday activities and young persons sessions. We strive to meet the needs of our community based on identifying their needs and what works for them.

About our UKSPF project

Whilst we are based within Area 3 covering Aspley, Bilborough and Broxtowe our model will work with anyone who wishes to access our services. Our model is a one stop-shop, which removes barriers to accessing services as everything we deliver is interconnected. Staff and projects do not work in silo, they form a multidisciplinary team working in a holistic way that encompasses not only the individual, but if needed the whole family.

Our hub provides advice on how to manage the increased Cost of Living (including support to take up energy efficiency measures) as well as offering volunteering opportunities, health and wellbeing activities, such as crafting, separate women’s and men’s groups, community fitness, trauma informed yoga, an African women’s support group and  a ‘pay what you can’ community café.

From December 2023, we will also provide Employment advice and support, providing a blended approach of one of CV help, IAG support as well as longer term support where needed. Linking with statutory agencies, to ensure that everyone is connected, services are not duplicated, and catching those that have fallen through the gaps.
