Year 3 Report on Their Work to Support People in Disadvantaged Areas to Create Community Activities
Attached is some
information regarding the Community Activators Scheme which is a project funded
by the Big Lottery (started Feb 2016) and delivered by Communities United
Project (CUP). It is a 4 year project which helps people in Kirklees to step up
and create activities for young people.
and young people’s services have been hit by cuts, so what can we do?
The answers vary from
community to community but here at CUP we support people in disadvantaged areas
to create great community activities.
Our work develops strengths, builds skills and
opens up routes to training and qualifications.
We create change. It starts with community activities and ends with stronger, more resilient individuals and groups.

Register to take part in our launch event
You are invited to the launch of Growing Great Places, a new community crowdfunding programme funded by Kirklees Council.
We’ve partnered with crowdfunding platform Spacehive on this exciting new initiative. As part of the programme we’re providing extra support to residents and groups who have ideas to share. There will be a fund of £50,000 available, with projects potentially getting pledges of up to £5,000 to support their campaign, plus workshops to help you pitch your idea.
People make places great: Our towns, villages and communities are the strength of Kirklees. You might have a little idea that can have a big impact by bringing a place together. Or you might need some help growing support for an ambitious project that’s just getting started.
This event will tell you everything you need to know to join in.
Book now for the first More Than Profit Network Meeting for social enterprises in Kirklees.
In partnership with Kirklees Council, University of Huddersfield, Social Enterprise Yorkshire and Humber, Local Services 2 You, and hosted by Ashbrow Partnering Together.
Join us on 5th June at Northfield Hall in Huddersfield for a breakfast network meeting following up on the Growing Social Enterprise in Kirklees Conference that we held in March.
At this meeting, our social enterprise partnership will be feeding back on what we learnt from you at the conference and will be following up on some of the key themes to emerge. In particular, we’ll be looking at and providing information on the support that’s available locally and nationally, including details from the network partners about the the support, services and events they can offer. Plus, we’ll be discussing further the issues around how we describe ourselves, and we’ve asked Adam Waterman from Eden’s Forest to tell us more about why he thinks that ‘more than profit’ is an appropriate term.
Refreshments will be provided.
You can book now via Eventbrite.
