Key priority: Improve Where We Live

We would like to support projects and ideas that help you improve your local area.

We would like to encourage new ideas for how to improve your community for all.


Ideas for projects that could be supported

Environmental projects are a way to encourage a lot of local people to get involved and work on ideas to improve your local community.

Play streets would be a great project to encourage local children and families to have fun and get to know each other better.
