Priors Park Neighbourhood Project

This charity runs as a community hub on the Priors Park estate in Tewkesbury in Gloucestershire. It runs a number of regular activities and groups including a job club, careers advice, art groups, ESOL and IT classes, a café, advice sessions, a library facility and also offers room space and venues for other local groups and parties etc.

At the June 2019 meeting, the Allen Lane Foundation agreed a grant of £6,000 over a two-year period to the Project. This will contribute to the salary of the Project Manager. This role is vital in running the community hub, and bringing together a range of marginalised community groups under one roof. Outcomes of the work include reduced isolation; increased employment and volunteering opportunities; better community cohesion; and improved lives for people in the local area.
