Peel Resource Centre Residents Association
Peel Resource centre tenants and residents association work with the community to host a variety of educational courses and school holiday family projects that help benefit the whole commuity. We are currently running Ambition for Ageing, which is a project to help make Salford more Age Friendly.
We are looking to bring together a core group of older people who live on their own to meet on a regular basis at Peel Resource centre. We plan to organise five community lunches and a trip to Bury Market so that people who are aged over 70 can come together, make new friends and reacquaint themselves with old friends in a safe, warm and friendly environment. Once we have piloted the community lunches and sought feedback we hope to continue building up regular attendance of residents that aims to tackle loneliness. The funds would provide start up costs for the older peoples project and we can use the money to pay for food, entertainment and a new cooker for the community centre.
We teach children from 0-5 years old a full range of the EYFS curriculum. This includes teaching the children early years goals, in partnership with their families.
Our first year has been an enormous success in generating business and community links. We would like to continue to provide great outcomes for the children.
We want to make the area around us safer and brighter and show the children we care about their environment and their needs. We would like funding for various projects and activities including: planting fruit and vegetables in our garden which the community can use; litter picking equipment and clothing; use of educational programmes like healthy eating; recycle bins; a worm compost bin; insect homes and hi-visibility jackets for all children in the winter months.
Old Lane Action
We are a group of tenants and home owners who cut back unwanted brambles, clean rubbish from paths and generally try to keep our area tidy and clean. We aim to make the area safer and more pleasant for people.
This is a new group, which is just getting going. We will be aiming to complete some projects, like putting in raised beds for the community. We would involve our local young people in projects like this to give them something to do and reduce anti-social behaviour. We hope that this will help them to respect the place they live in.
We have been in close contact with councillors, Salford City Council and the Community Payback team who have been a great help, supporting us in what we are aiming to do.
We would use the funding to pay for equipment such as rakes, shears, wheelbarrows, spades, forks and litter picking tongs.
