Inclusive Boston

 

Lincolnshire Community and Voluntary Service is one of several partners working with Boston Borough Council to deliver the Inclusive Boston project to promote community cohesion throughout the town.

Funding secured from the Department of Communities and Local Government will be used to:

·         improve access to English lessons

·         promote and encourage community cohesion

·         bolster advice services

·         focus on tackling and remedying the impact of rogue landlords and anti-social behaviour

The team at LCVS is looking to identify and support community leaders and champions to further equip them with the skills, knowledge and confidence to encourage everyone in Boston to feel a part of the town and to become fully involved in the wider community.

The Inclusive Boston team will provide support and training for emerging community leaders in areas where need is identified eg

·         safeguarding

·         health and safety

·         equality and diversity

·         benefits of volunteering

·         organising community events

·         networking opportunities

·         setting up and running of community groups

In time, the team will establish a community leadership forum to enable people to get together to chat, share ideas and knowledge, and work together to form an integrated community in Boston.

Community Development Workers, Elena O’Callaghan and Jules Arthur, will also act as vital community connectors, signposting to services that support the migrant community, champion integration and promote volunteering.

Volunteering is a valuable means to contributing to and becoming involved in the local community, as well as offering opportunities for people to develop existing skills, gain new ones and build confidence.

The Inclusive Boston team is committed to the development of a local network that will continue to support community long into the future. If you would like to know more about the project, if you are already active or if you are interested in volunteering with the team, please get in touch – inclusiveboston@lincolnshirecvs.org.uk
