Our 1 Burley:170 Voice’s project was launched on the 1st April 2021 and will support people living in Burley to build a sustainable movement through them taking a lead in developing and delivering community activities that bring women together from across the area’s societal divides. Over time they will benefit from new friendshipsand communityresilience 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.
