Our work across the Hartcliffe and Withywood
At HWCP we help make sure the local community can make decisions about local issues. We initiate projects and promote local partnership work between the community, businesses, council and voluntary groups. We believe in empowering local residents and are here to support anyone who wants to get involved in the local community.
Over the last year we have been door knocking and holding workshops to create a local vision to build community social action in Hartcliffe and Withywood. We have an ambitious plan to work with partners and the community to create a place where:
- Community led activity is realising Children and Young People’s aspirations and potential
- We have pride of place for our environment – owned and looked after by local people
- Everyone is welcome and feels safe
- Individuals and communities can have a positive impact on their Health & Wellbeing
We have just heard that our plan has been successful in a national competition and will receive three years funding from the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport and The National Lottery Community Fund. We’ll be working in partnership with Bristol City Council, Live West Housing, Youth Providers and local schools, HHEAG and others.
See below for a press release about the proposal and our three year community plan:
