Our 1 Burley:170 Voice’s project was launched on the 1st April 2021 and supports people living in Burley to build a sustainable movement by them taking a lead in developing and delivering community activities bringing people together. Over time they will benefit from new friendships and community resilience will be built to ensure there is a thriving ‘community offer’ going forward.
The project will enable those leading the project, our Community Leaders, to gain skills, knowledge, and experience in the running of sustainable community events and which will result in families living in Burley having:
improved wellbeing and social cohesion
reduced social isolation across age ranges with an emphasis on mothers of young children and newly arrived community members
improved community integration
inter-generational activities and events
a sense of one community knowing and supporting each other
1 Burley:170 Voice’s will work to reach out across Burley and develop a movement that brings together people to grow a sustainable community movement.
If you live in Burley or the surrounding area and are interested in joining please contact us via email@example.com or tel 0113 275 4142 for a chat about how you can join, take part and lead events to support the Burley community.
