We are extremely pleased to announce that Better Leeds Communities has been awarded 5 years funding from the Reaching Communities National Lottery Community Fund
Burley: 170 Voices has been developed in conjunction with our Community Leaders Group. The projects aim is to enable people to spend time together doing things they enjoy and can benefit from; so that they can learn individually and from each other; support people to build networks; and help them to improve personal wellbeing and community cohesion.
The Community Leaders, with our support, will arrange a range of activities and events for local women, and for children in the school holidays and around seasonal events, as we know that it can be difficult for children and families to get to know each other in Burley due to the limited public and private space.
Taking the COVID-19 situation into consideration delivery will initially be digitally building on our successful ‘Burley Voices Digital Project’, and then support people to move back to community participation once the situation allows
The project launches in April 2021. For further details keep please follow us on Facebook and Twitter or contact Mel on firstname.lastname@example.org
