"working together for your neighbourhood"
WHAT IS ASPIRING COMMUNITIES?
“When communities are well organised, inclusive, influential and cohesive they create a positive environment for people to enjoy a good quality of life”
Scottish Community Development Centre
Aspiring Communities, an initiative funded by Scottish Government and The European Social Fund, supports local people to make significant and positive changes in their local community.
We are delighted to say that The Caledonian Circuit and Halfway are two local communities that have been selected to be part of this initiative, supported by Healthy n Happy Community Development Trust. Over the past six months local residents, groups and organisations have got together, made plans and are taking action to make their local community a great place to live, work and play.
Specifically, over 480 local residents have directly informed a new vision and plan for each area, Halfway and The Caledonian Circuit (click the name to view). These documents will now support further planning and development of local services, projects and activities in the coming years.
As part of this process local residents, groups and organisations are continuing to work together to find opportunities to apply for direct investment to implement their plans and priorities. Part of this process will include a Stage 2 Aspiring Communities bid (when the fund reopens) to help fund some of the activities, projects and services that feature in the community vision and plan.
Healthy n Happy will continue to support local residents, groups and organisations through face to face conversations, meetings and community events. To find out what is happening in your local neighbourhood, click below:
