We were really pleased to be able to work with the NCS leaders at Huddersfield Giants Community Trust to help 35 young people learn about, and get involved in, local democracy.
The Huddersfield Town Foundation supported young people to try out one of our Everyday democracy activities as part of this Summer’s NCS Keep Doing Good programme.
The Holme Valley Sharing Memories Group in Holmfirth have run a successful Growing Great Places crowdfunding campaign to bring people together at a time when social contact has never been so important.
Life in lockdown has made the importance of our local venues, and of ways that we can connect with each other, even clearer. Sensory World in Dewsbury want to create a new Sensory Garden for socialising and making new friends.
We’re supporting citizens and organisations who have great ideas for making our local places even better. Come along to a free online crowdfunding workshop to find out how Growing Great Places can help you to get a great idea off the ground in your community.
A small group of dedicated citizens in East Bierley are crowdfunding to help look after a special local place.
Many more of us have come to realise just how vital our local green spaces such as parks and woodlands can be for our health and wellbeing, and for our sense of belonging. We’re pleased to be able to join local people in pledging our support to a new outdoor classroom in Caulms Wood near Dewsbury.
Can your school community help to try out some creative activities to explore everyday democracy? We’ve been inspired by all the creative things young people have been doing during lockdown…
We’re delighted to share the news that the Holmfirth Repair Café have already reached their crowdfunding target. We talked to project leader Caroline Anstey about her experience, and why neighbourliness is more important than ever.
Our everyday local democracy is about working with our citizens and organisations in our local places. That’s what we’ve been continuing to do over the past eight weeks. Just in a different way from what any of us were expecting. So on what would have been local election day, we wanted to take a few minutes let you know that we’re still with you.
