Community First

Mapesbury Community First Panel (completed Spring 2015)

The primary aim of the Mapesbury Community First Programme was to support the Cricklewood Improvement Programme’s Neighbourhood Plan through capacity building voluntary activity in the Mapesbury Ward.  This programme has now closed as all the funding available has been allocated.  The key objective of the Cricklewood Neighbourhood Plan is the improvement of Cricklewood.  The vision has been defined as “to make Cricklewood a safe, healthy, tidy and desirable neighbourhood whose development is driven by residents in collaboration with councils and other relevant organisations”.  A copy of the Mapesbury Community First’s Plan is available HERE

 

Projects we have supported since 2010 include:

The final project funded is a Legacy Project which has taken the evaluations from the activities funded above and set up some programmes to meet the identified needs for upskilling in social media to improve the marketing of the activities across the groups, support with funding applications and support for developing linkages from the Cricklewood website to the projects to support their development. We look forward to meeting many of the members of the groups we have supported at these workshops.

The Community First Programme focused on the following priorities:

  • community cohesion linking to the strategies in schools, local businesses, residents and creative groups supporting youth and the elderly
  • celebrating the history and culture of the population in Mapesbury
  • efforts to promote positive social behaviour.
