Manton Community Alliance (Pathfinder) reaches its destination
Manton Community Alliance (MCA) is to end on 31st December 2011 after seven years. Much has happened at a Manton level. Residents tell us that their neighbourhood is now a better place to live in and that MCA has made a difference.
At a national level the joint working of residents and agencies through MCA is held up as a great example of what can be done locally using new and different methods. Manton and MCA are now being studied, written about and copied by people in Denmark and Norway.
Manton Community Alliance would like to thank everyone who has been part of these achievements and success over the last seven years.
The secret to success is: Don’t be led be a leader, don’t be passive be active, don’t just accept make a difference.

Welcome to Manton Community
Through this website, you can find out about all the exciting activities that are happening in Manton, and the people working in the Issue Groups and Community Groups that make up the Manton Community Alliance.
What does the Alliance do?
Manton Community Alliance provides an effective way of managing change in the local neighbourhood. Manton Community Alliance is made up of local people working together with the organisations and agencies that provide a service in Manton.
If you live in Manton, being part of the Alliance gives you the chance to help make a difference to things that concern or interest you.
This kind of neighbourhood management is effective because local people are involved in helping organisations to provide services that are needed and appropriate to Manton.

How's it going to work?
For this process to work − and more importantly, for it to last − people need to get involved. There are several groups in Manton, each dealing with a particular issue of concern.
Service providers attend these meetings so there is always the opportunity for local residents to provide an input and influence decisions that are made. Meetings take place in the community, at times to suit group members, and childcare is available if needed. Each issue group is represented on the main Manton Community Alliance Board.
