Key priority: Support Communities Working Together to Address Local Needs
We would like to support activities where residents and community groups are at the heart of helping to build healthier happier communities.
We want to support community groups across the city to be able to work together to address the issues that matter to them.
Funding could be made available to support ideas such as; local litter picks, garden and green space clear ups or a family fun day.
Projects that have been supported that focus on Supporting Communities Working together to Address Local needs
Powderham Crescent Residents Association – received funding to clear the greenery that was growing through the railing surrounding the garden and to also paint the railings in the back of the garden and surrounding area. A number of local residents and students took part of this project which has enhanced community relationships.
Newcourt Community Association – was awarded a small grant to purchase plates and bowls to reduce their use of paper equivalents and thereby their carbon footprint. This helped them provide refreshments for a local event, a memorial event for MP Jo Cox, with far reduced environmental impact.
Wood Craft Folk – was awarded a grant for the replacement of tents so children could attend a summer camp. This organisation helps children with building confidence and awareness of the society around them.
