Our Key Priorities

Our Key Priorities

When Leigh Neighbours was originally established, we embarked on a community consultation exercise to find out how local people felt about the area and how they thought the investment could be spent for the greatest benefit.

We consulted with more than 800 people including church groups, people in community centres and schools and libraries, to ensure that the Leigh Neighbours Project plan reflected your concerns and priorities for your neighbourhood.

Based on what you told us, these are our key priorities:

Community Spirit

Bringing people together and developing greater community spirit is what drives Leigh Neighbours! Whether it’s funding an event as part of The Big Lunch or organising a litter pick to help make the area cleaner and greener, we recognise that there is value in creating opportunities that allow people to get to know their neighbours, to break down social barriers and challenge misconceptions.

Education, Employment and Training

Bringing people together and developing greater community spirit is what drives Leigh Neighbours! Whether it’s funding an event as part of The Big Lunch or organising a litter pick to help make the area cleaner and greener, we recognise that there is value in creating.

Environmental Improvements

Housing

We’ve known since we first started consulting with local people that there were concerns about housing.

The worries that local people shared were around the number of private let properties in the area, the way that some private landlords managed their properties and the poor physical condition that many of the properties were in.

Resident’s Fund

We have money set aside to support local residents, groups, organisation and schools to deliver small projects which will help the area a better place to live.

These can range from ideas to spruce up the alley behind their houses, like this area behind Selwyn Street.

Volunteer here!

Volunteering in the community is one of the most rewarding pastimes that can be enjoyed by absolutely anybody and everybody.
