Building stronger communities

The Great Yarmouth Neighbourhoods That Work partnership works with local residents to build stronger communities. It focuses on people, neighbourhoods, and the things that matter most to people. It creates an approach for organisations to work with the local community in a consistent way, with shared goals and building strong relationships.

Through the support of the Big Lottery Fund and Department for Media, Culture and Sport’s Youth Investment Fund, MAP is working on a project to provide new opportunities for young people to get involved in their communities, support their personal development and get the skills and confidence they need to enter the workplace.  Over the next three years MAP will be offering an expanded range of leisure, cultural, sporting, events and enrichment activities, with a focus on outreach activities in local neighbourhoods.  Read more about the Youth Investment Fund and this project in our Media section.
