Newydd Housing Association is delighted to be working alongside the Space Saviours project for the next two years. Space Saviours is a project that supports tenants and residents to turn an unloved empty space in their community, into something better. Tenants and residents can attend a number of informal, friendly workshops exploring biodiversity, community growing, natural play design, getting safely around their neighbourhood and better estate design principles. The Project Officers can deliver these sessions in the community at accessible and appropriate settings and venues.Tenants and residents are encouraged and supported to start a community group, and have the opportunity to be matched with a professional consultant to fully explore their ideas, find out about land ownership, costings, designs and consultations, and jointly produce a project plan.
The Project Officer can offer full support to access funding to turn community projects into a reality. If you would like to chat about some unloved space near you, please contact Shelley Bird, Space Saviours Project Officer on 07747 622045 or speak to your Housing Officer for more information.
