The purpose of the advisory group (PDF) and reference groups (PDF) is to advise and further the work of the Community of Communities whose purpose is to improve the quality of TCs by supporting standards-based peer-review and accreditation. 

The Community of Communities have a diverse membership with a range of services across all sectors. Whilst all communities have signed up to the same standards, (addiction TCs have a supplementary set) the needs of each sector do vary.

We are keen to host an inclusive network and want to hear from all members to support and improve the Community of Communities.

If you would like to attend any of these groups please contact

Every year Community of Communities holds a creative competition where members can submit their artwork.

We welcome submissions from any of our members and these can be paintings, drawings, sculptures, photography, poetry or short stories. We have received some fantastic submissions over the years. Winning entries will receive a certificate and will be displayed on our website.

This year our Creative Competition was displayed at our Annual Forum in June 2023.

Winners will have their art included in reports we publish, and are displayed on our website.
