Community Solutions Fund
We are all aware local authorities have ever decreasing spending power. The ability to grow community capacity and enable individuals, families and communities to do more for themselves is vital if we are to realise the aspirations for Worcestershire outlined in the Corporate Plan – Shaping Worcestershire’s Future.
Act Local – Worcestershire’s Vision for Localism continues to promote cultural change – new ways of working and new ways of thinking
• communities – less reliant on the Council to solve problems or issues, and taking the initiative to do this for themselves
• partners – encouraging and promoting a response where the local community takes responsibility
• councillors – embracing their community leadership role and using self-service options – the support available will change as the Council changes
• officers – responding to Councillors and communities, developing new skills and supporting Councillors and communities
We recognise the important roles played by Parish and Town Councils, the Voluntary and Community Sector, partners and organisations in supporting local communities to come together and do things for themselves; taking control of improving the quality of life in the places where we live.
In order to help achieve this Worcestershire County Council has set up a Community Solutions Fund.
