On July 9 2013 the government announced a £4.3m package of support for neighbourhoods to take their future into their own hands.
This follows a successful year-long pilot programme, which saw neighbourhoods across the country working out how to improve the lives of local residents. Now, it’s your turn to take up the mantle, and show us how things can be done better in your area.
Do kids have enough to do in your neighbourhood?
Are your elderly neighbours getting good quality home care?
Would you like to get a good job locally?
- You can take control in your area to make sure that things work in the best way for local people.
- This could mean setting up more sports activities for young people
- It might mean linking elderly people to volunteer helpers
- It could even mean working with businesses to offer more local apprenticeships
