Community Development & Regeneration
Community Regeneration at ClwydAlyn
ClwydAlyn's overall aim is 'Together to beat Poverty' and community-led regeneration, which remains at the heart of our regeneration strategy, plays a key role in delivering this vision.
This is because we recognise that people who work and live in communities are the real 'experts' in those neighbourhoods, being best placed to: identify current issues and opportunities in their local area; decide what to do about them and make positive changes in their communities.
Our aim for local communities, where we have a presence, is to be:
- Inclusive: so everyone has opportunities to access services and get involved
- Attractive: helping create places where people want to live, work and/or volunteer
- Active: where residents have plenty of opportunities to participate (i.e. in community activities, training, volunteering and/or employment).
Our current strategy is to keep working in partnership with residents and other local stakeholders, to encourage community-led regeneration in areas where we have a presence, through:
- Addressing Digital Exclusion
- Enhancing the local environment and biodiversity
- Tackling poverty
- Improving health and wellbeing
- Bringing Communities Together (Community Cohesion)
- Building Skills and Confidence.
Louise Blackwell is ClwydAlyn's Community Development Officer and is available to provide residents, established groups and partners with support, to develop asset based community devlopment projects, that aim to: empower local people; address physical, social and/or economic inequalities and benefit local communities.
How can residents get involved?
We are keen for more of our residents (young and old) to participate and have a voice in leading local communities; this will develop people's skills and confidence, as well as achieve better places and outcomes for North Wales
If you would like to get more involved in helping your community however, are not sure where to start, please take a look at our 'Community Regeneration' mind gap and community portfolio which may inspire you with some ideas.
Or if you would simply welcome some support, to turn your ideas into real community projects (including advice about local funding opportunities) then we would love to hear from you! Please contact Louise by: Tel 01745 536913, email firstname.lastname@example.org or on Twitter @marielouiseblac
