Background

Rudheath and Witton Together is your Big Local community project providing support and activities in the local area since 2013. Originally awarded £1 million by the Big Lottery to make the local area an even better place to live, we are now in the final phase with just over £300,000 left for the project.

Amongst the things this project has supported is our community with food support for families, weekly groups such as Knit and Natter, community events such as the fete in 2019, grants to local groups and individuals, music classes and support during the Covid-19 pandemic.

A Social enterprise called ‘Your Back Yard’ has been commissioned by Rudheath and Witton Together to help them develop their new plan,which will take them through to the end of the programme.

Consultation so far

Over the past few months partner organisations, residents, partnership members, school headteachers, teachers and parents have been
consulted remotely, via phone, email or video call. They were consulted about ideas to improve the area. This has resulted in some key project ideas emerging. We would love to hear your thoughts on these and any ideas you have on how the remaining money should be invested.

Those who complete this survey will be entered into a prize draw to win £50 of shopping vouchers!

By the way, if you’re aged 18 or under and would like to get involved in setting up the young people's fund (should there be enough support for it) please give us your contact details below.
