The Importance of a Community Center to Community


with Sue Anderson & Amanda Buck


Developing Community Centers from an idea founded in 3P to serve multi-generations that support their communities and the people who participate within them.

Sue Anderson

Sue has spent 40 years working within the private, public and voluntary sector, in particular, working within communities. Hearing about the Three Principles around five years ago, she heard something deep in her heart, and from that moment on, she knew her life was going to be very different. Sue says, "I felt like I had come home, and I was sure that I wanted to share that feeling for the rest of my life."

Sue has created a 6 week programme called “Second Chance,” delivering it to people from local communities and workers from several different organisations.

Sue is one of the co-creators of the first Northern Three Principles Conference, and is proud to bring such respected speakers to the North East.

Amanda has worked in the voluntary/community sector for 24 years, working to regenerate areas of deprivation (including communities that have a high level of people from other ethnic backgrounds).

Originally trained in Community Development, Amanda creates healthy communities through the care, support and loving attention that she gives to everyone who walks through her door, by providing crises intervention in the venue she manages in Breckon Hill, Middlesbrough.

After being introduced to the Three Principles in 2014, Amanda realised how this understanding could help each and every client/resident she engages with and says, "I feel privileged to be in a position to share this information and grateful to witness the impact it has on people’s lives.”

Amanda is one of the co-creators of the first Northern Three Principles Conference.
