The Network is a Community Development project working alongside people living in Ashley, Easton and Lawrence Hill wards. We help people to organise in the community around the issues and interests that affect the lives of them and their neighbours.
Over the past three years, The Network has worked alongside many residents to develop a wide variety of community initiatives and activities. Some examples include cultural events, street parties, campaigns, reclaiming community spaces, establishing regular activities, developing community assets, direct action, group development, fun days & fundraisers!
Much of the success has come through people building their networks around positive ideas, connecting with those living in their neighbourhoods and taking action together.
The project is a partnership between Wellspring Settlement, St. Werburghs City Farm and Bristol Somali Resource Centre. We work closely together to build on our collective expertise, specialisms and resources in order to deliver The Network. We are funded through the Bristol Impact Fund.
