CNet has delivered a wide range of projects some of which can be seen on this page.

Together We Are Bradford was a project run by CNet in partnership with West Bowling Centre and funded by the Home Office "Building A Stronger Britain Together" programme. The aim was to encourage dialogue and cooperation between communities in Bradford East, West and South to promote community cohesion by creating a Together We Are Bradford Community Network with representatives from different communities. The Network aims were to:
- Nurture a common vision and sense of belonging
- Appreciate, respect and value the differences between people of different cultures
- Make strong and positive relationships between people of different ethnicities
- Work together to promote equal opportunities for all in the community
- Aim to make Bradford a better place to work, live and play
The project enabled community representatives opportunities to discuss, explore and share information and knowledge about their own communities in order to increase understanding and awareness enabling communities to work together on issues of common concern, whilst accepting and respecting each other's cultural identity
Representatives were also invited to participate in and contribute to existing strategic district forums via the Bradford District Assembly e.g. the Equalities Forum, Health and Wellbeing Forum and Community Economic Forum.

The aim of the “Our Neighbourhoods” project in Holme Wood was to encourage and enable communities and stakeholders to work together to bring about positive long term change and opportunities for residents. We brought together residents, local businesses, statutory and non statutory agencies working in areas such as health, schools, police, council and housing to ensure that all voices had a say in shaping decisions and making plans for the future. Our approach was asset based community development, i.e. utilising local resources to achieve long term sustainable outcomes. Although this was a short term project, it built the foundation for a strong network that will strengthen the community, build resilience and make Holme Wood a better place to live, work and play.
