Arts and Culture
Community arts and heritage projects, which includes music and dance. Projects could include, funding a local orchestra, hosting yoga/sewing classes, or helping to restore a historic building.
The improvement of any community spaces whether it be an alleyway, school, a green space or a high street. This would encompass all clean ups, guerrilla gardening projects and play streets.
Events for the community run by the community and its businesses. Hanwell Hootie, street parties, family fun days.
Safety and wellbeing
Creating a safer environment, irrespective of whether it is a home, schools, street or park. Projects could range from residents helping out the local fire brigade by installing smoke alarms in their elderly neighbours’ homes, or rallying the neighbours to gate an alleyway independent of the council.
Creating businesses for both social and business goals. Provide a community hub by developing a community shop with local food, a café and internet access.
Projects that involve sports or hobbies. Ideas could include setting up a running club, offering football, netball or cricket sessions or organising a cycle tour of Ealing.
Projects which make links with young people. Whether its kayaking for the disabled, or encouraging young people to restore a garden for a sheltered housing unit.
