Joining In! is a project that supports community involvement across Guildford including Westborough and Park Barn.
Managed by Voluntary Action South West Surrey and co-ordinated by David Rose it works by informing people of activities and events that take place in their local area and how they can get involved.
It does this through its website www.joiningin.org.uk, booklets, posters and flyers, plus social media. In addition, it supports groups, organisations, school and churches who offer activities and things to do, by promoting them and their services and giving them good advice on best practices and raising funds. Joining in! also helps to run groups and hosts community events.
Project Aspire is here because we believe every person matters - this fundamentally underpins all we do. We are committed with our partners to improving the lives of our residents.
Project Aspire is working with our diverse range of communities to strengthen the community fabric that makes Guildford a place where everyone is truly valued. We are focusing our efforts on our less advantaged communities and will continue to promote partnership solutions involving not only statutory agencies but most importantly the people who live here.
We will support communities to develop local solutions to local issues.
Find out about our Community Grants Scheme which offers funding for community projects and initiatives to benefit residents in the Park Barn and Westborough areas.
We are determined to play our part in improving the health and well-being of our residents and to reduce social inequality and Project Aspire is about providing leadership, encouragement and support to all communities to build upon the talents and energy we see every day to build true communities where neighbours can rely on one another.
We will seek to empower all our communities to take an active role in the decisions that affect their lives.
