Future Communities Initiative launches a new project to support people looking to make a difference
The Future Communities Initiative – funded by RWE Goole 2 Wind Farm and coordinated by East Riding of Yorkshire Council – has developed a new project seeking to enhance community development.
The ambition is to support two pathfinder projects within the Pocklington Provincial Ward and two others in the East Riding area.
Proposals are being invited from organisations that will make an impact and enhance activity at the grassroots level, offering support, development training and network opportunities to individuals wanting to get involved or build on their involvement in their local community.
The project will expand people’s skills and knowledge, enabling them to gain an insight into the operational aspects of how community organisations and groups deliver their aims and objectives and develop their understanding of the fundamentals that make volunteering in their community successful.
Councillor David Elvidge, portfolio holder for community involvement and voluntary sector at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: “Local community action and volunteering has always been a key element in the vitality and wellbeing of communities.”
