Connect with your community

We work with our customers and partners to create flourishing and empowering communities. We believe that by connecting with your community, you can access networks, opportunities and inspiration to live well and realise your potential. 

Do you have any ideas for improving where you live and work? The Well Rotherham public health project is backing people in the local community with ideas to help improve health and wellbeing.

Based in Waverley, the project is working to grow the opportunities available through the Advanced Manufacturing Park, the new community, the local centre development, and the 300 acres of urban nature park.

Well Rotherham is also working on a programme of activities that have a positive and lasting impact on the area. They relate to three key themes:

 

Waverley is
a great place to work

Waverley is
a great place to live

Waverley is
an active community

Well Rotherham has a budget to support ideas that have a positive and sustainable impact on Waverley and the surrounding areas. It’s currently funding The North Star, a Science Summer School Event.

 

The grant offers up to £300 start-up support and free training to grass-roots projects.

The Great Ideas Grant supports local people to bring their ideas to life in their neighbourhood making it a better place to live, work and play.

Your project should reach and support your local community to work towards one of the following outcomes:

  • My community is a green and pleasant place to be
  • My community has lots of things for people to do
  • People connect with each other in my community
  • Children thrive in my community
  • People are healthy and active in my community

If your idea is successful, a project mentor will be on hand to support, advise and guide you along the way.

Anyone who lives or works in Waverley, Catcliffe or Treeton can pitch to receive a grant. It’s only available to individual community members or informal groups, and not to constituted groups or larger organisations.
