Community Connections community development workers have been facilitating the Neighbourhood Community Development Partnerships in conjunction with the LB Lewisham ward assembly team and LB Lewisham Public Health.
This month, community groups used the NCDPs as a platform to allocate £100,000 in funding from Lewisham Public Health. Community groups came together to vote on what bids they would like to see funded in their neighbouhoods, basing this decision on earlier community workshops to identify local priorities and assets.
The funded projects are:
North Lewisham Good Neighbours
Entelechy Arts and Voluntary Services Lewisham
We Women and Co-Pepys
Manor Park Friends
Francis Drake Bowls Club
Asian Elders Wellbeing Club
St Mauritius House
Hilton Health and Wellbeing
The Mothers’ Springboard Programme
Men Talk Mental Health Film Club
Stanstead Lodge Seniors Club
Lewisham Wellbeing Map: Bellingham Community Project
Congratulations to all groups involved and we look forward to the next NCDP meetings in the new year! If you would like to get involved in the NCDP in your area, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
