Between 1st April 2013 and 31st March 2014:

Last year tenants were responsible for choosing where to spend money on improving the quality of life for local people. These are some of the community projects that we chose to support:
  • A new website for Wycombe Women’s Aid so visitors have access to really important information on how to access this brilliant service
  • A co-ordinator for Movers and Shakers classes that promote health and wellbeing for older people
  • The Wycombe Community festival
  • A project at Lane End where local residents have come together to regenerate their playing fields and sports pavilion
  • A van for Chefs for Jesus to serve food and drinks to those who need it
  • Three new Shopmobility scooters
You also spent money in your neighbourhoods:
  • Improving parking areas
  • Landscaping communal garden areas
  • Replacing fences
  • Putting in raised flower beds
  • Improving play areas
  • Applying for the fund is easy...just follow the simple process on this page

Take a look at these videos to see just some of the things that have happened over the last year and how the money spent has really made a difference

Supporting a local organisation called Community Transform to develop a Community Hub at Gayhurst Road called ‘Our Place’. Our Place opened in July 2014 and will be somewhere the local community can come to learn new skills, get support and help, meet other people and buy second hand items at a low cost

Working with the Lane End residents to support them in regenerating their playing fields and sports pavilion

Creating more opportunities for staff to get out in the community and support local projects.

Our tenants make the decisions about what we spend our Neighbourhood and Environmental Improvement budget on, so that the money is spent in the right places and really does improve the quality of life for local people

By working with other local organisations through supporting projects with our community fund, we develop partnerships which will bring real improvements for local communities.

Michelle Ball (Chair of the Neighbourhood Interest Group)

"I have been involved with the Neighbourhood Interest Group for two years, most recently becoming the Chair of the group. It’s really worthwhile being part of a group that contributes ideas on how our communities can be improved. It’s also a great feeling to be able to award the funding on good ideas such as garden furniture for sheltered accommodation and improved car parking at various other schemes. Our input has helped to make a positive outcome in our communities and it’s clear that our voice is heard, as you can see from the projects we have supported over the past year. "
