Do you have a great idea for an event that will benefit local people and bring people together? We’re giving you the chance to win £75 to help bring your event to life!

Hi, my name’s Aletia and I am a Community Engagement worker for United Communities. I work across Bristol, mainly in Lockleaze, Horfield & Southmead. My role is to help people from different backgrounds come together and support action on issues that matter to you.

I have met some amazing residents who are active in their communities, but I know there are many more of you out there! The best ideas come from local residents and people who know their communities, like you. United Communities are offering the chance to win £75 to help bring your idea to life.

Maybe you want to hold a world feast or a repair café, meet your neighbours over a skills-swap, or show a film that raises issues that are important to you? Or is there a residents project you want to get off the ground and you need to fund your first few meetings?

Whatever your idea, your event should:

Help local people come together

Have a positive impact on your local community

Be inclusive & welcoming to all

£75 may be enough to fund your whole event, but it may not cover all your costs - think about the local resources you can use and what you can ask people to contribute. To apply, please email Aletia@unitedcommunities.org.uk explaining how your event meets the criteria above, a brief description of your event idea and where and when you will hold your event.  If you have any questions, feel free to phone Aletia on 0117 942 4600

Please get your ideas in and we will announce the winner in the next edition of the Voice!
