Coventry Community Empowerment Network (CEN) is a network of more than 200 community and user-led groups from across the city.
The network is community led and brings together groups and people who are interested in making a difference in their neighbourhood and community.
CEN provides a mechanism to enable community voices to be heard by the people and organisations who make the decisions that affect everyone's life so that we can all contribute to making Coventry a better place to live.
CEN welcomes new groups, so if you want to find out what's happening and have a voice in your community and your city, you can find out more about joining here.
What CEN does
Sharing and Learning
Members can come throughout the year to find out what's going on, support each other and take action on common issues. We hold information fairs, training events, conferences and workshops on specific issues independently and with other partner organisations.
Representation and Influence
CEN representatives ensure community views are heard by the Coventry Partnership, the body responsible for delivering the Community Plan. This plan aims to improve the quality of life for everyone in the city, and especially those living in priority neighbourhoods.
Our newsletters, bulletins and website will update you on community issues, useful resources and news from other groups, the Council and funders.
