Our community plan:

Newsome Ward Community Plan, March 2013 (pdf)

About this plan

We are Newsome Ward Community First, a panel of local people who have some funding available to support community groups and projects in our area, and to help new projects to get started. We have worked with residents, community organisations, schools and people who work in the Newsome Ward to create this Community Plan.

Our plan will help us decide how to spend our current funding and will also help us all to plan for our community’s future.

Community survey

To find out what people think about living here, we asked over 500 local residents for their views. A dedicated team of volunteers ran the Newsome Ward Community Survey in February 2013, using a questionnaire to ask a range of questions about our area. The key findings are included in our plan, and the full survey results are also available at:

Newsome Ward Community Survey results

Community audits

To help community organisations and activists in the Newsome Ward, we have put together a range of community audits, which are lists of useful community information:

We have also worked with Newsome Timebanking to understand and celebrate local people’s skills:
