The Council recognises that the community must be at the centre of driving and shaping recovery.
Throughout our conversations, we have clearly heard that residents want to build on the existing strengths and resources of their communities to enable a community-led recovery.
Residents have emphasised the importance of building community capacity, the role of the community and voluntary sector, and the need to ensure fair access to community spaces.
The Community Programme is focused on the Notting Dale area and will deliver:
- a Notting Dale local partnership group
- a local grants pot for local organisations in Notting Dale
- a community leadership and development programme
- a review of community spaces, including The Curve
These plans will be delivered further in partnership with residents and local organisations.
