The Big Lottery has awarded Support Cambridgeshire an Awards For all Grant to help deliver social action projects in Soham, East Cambridgeshire.
The award was granted in July 2018 and the scheme commenced on 4th September 2018.
So whats going to happen:
The Neighbourhood Cares Team of the County Council are already active in Soham, and have been over the past 12 months. Our award enables Support Cambridgeshire to work with that team, and many of the other agencies who are already providing valuable services in the area.
Over the next 12 months Support Cambridgeshire will play an active role in:
- Mapping the good work that’s already taking place in Soham and ensuring residents know where and how to find services, activities and projects.
- Having a community conversation with the residents about what they like, want improved or want to shape in their Neighbourhood.
- Providing the results of this survey and encouraging residents to think about, start or support them in developing ideas about how best to assist their community and neighbours.
Watch out for the survey – its coming soon.
Ben Pitt (Communities Officer) states:
The local residents of Soham are best placed to tell us what’s missing in their local community. I look forward to working with them over the next 12 months, exploring ways of working together and connecting the community.
