What is Community First?

What is Community First?

Community First is an Eng

land-wide programme, funded by the Office for Civil Society, on behalf of the Government. It will run for four years, until March 2015. Two funds of money, worth £80m, have been created to help communities come together, become more resilient, and make their local area a better place to live.

Community First Panels: Each of the 600 areas will have their own panel, comprised of local people to represent their community. They will be involved in creating a plan for the local area, raising awareness of the funds, and planning how they will match and spend the money.

What does this mean for you?

Woodhouse Ward has been selected as one of the 600 areas to receive Community First funding. A Community First panel has been set up in your area, made up of local people. Get in touch to find out more or get involved.
