The Trust provides practical help and support to local groups. There are 24 active residents associations that are also constituted groups in Seedley and Langworthy at present. The Trust helps and supports these groups with identifying their aims and objectives, writing constitutions, facilitating their meetings and minute taking. The support also extends to advising the groups on available funding & grants opportunities and helping them to write up funding & grants applications.
Initially the ERDF funding was used in supporting and developing the Trust’s Residents Associations and these groups played an important role in encouraging community involvement in the regeneration initiatives & projects taking place in the area and especially in the successful implementation of the Alleygating scheme piloted in Seedley and Langworthy. At present, local groups are supported under the Neighbourhood Renewal funding and this includes setting up new groups, fundraising advice and support, supporting volunteers and identifying appropriate training. We are also in the process of developing Residents Forums to create a support network for local groups to share learning and disseminate information.
