Acton – Reimagine the heart of Acton
‘Reimagine The Heart of Acton’
a collective conversation.
TUESDAY 13th JULY 2021
In an effort to grasp opportunities and tackle problems in the local area, MutualGain, a social capital building organisation, is supporting the community of Acton to instigate a collective conversation about what we could do to help improve The Mount area of Acton.
- Live round table meeting on The Mount itself
- Virtual meeting for those who can’t attend in person.
What does the Mount area mean to you?
How would you like to see it improve?
What would you be willing to do to make change possible?
The purpose of the meeting is to highlight local issues and find possible solutions. This will be stage one of the supported delivery by Mutual Gain. Once information has been gathered from this meeting, local people will be invited to pitch for an available £15K of funding to help address the themes that come from the cafe.
A steering group made up of community leaders and volunteers have been meeting over the last few months to understand what questions need to be asked and how we can get all cross sections of the community to the table for the discussion. All members of the community are invited to attend. In an effort to ensure equal representation, we have allocated a budget for 50 paid places (£20 each) which we will distribute to a cross section of residents and users of the Mount area.
We are currently seeking sponsors in the hope that we can increase the budget for paid contribution and also for other activities on the day. Local businesses interested in providing funding for paid places or help with decor, food or entertainment please get in touch.
We will need a range of volunteers on the day to include: Set up team, Table hosts (Facilitators) and Digital Support. If you think you can help please get in touch.
