Neighbourhood Resilience Blog
On Monday the first Cheetham Hill Resilience workshop took place, a big step in Urban Forum's joint project with the Centre for Local Economic Strategies (CLES) to develop a new model of neighbourhood community resilience building.
In this second phase of the project, Urban Forum brought together a range of key people from the local voluntary and community, business and public sectors to develop a shared action plan, based on research into neighbourhood resilience in Cheetham Hill which CLES led in the first phase of the project. The group developed an ambitious but, by-and-large practical plan, showing what can be achieved in just one morning. The plan has a clear aim of increasing resilience through action that makes the most of the people, organisations, and strengths available in one neighbourhood in north Manchester.
