Welcome To Our Place Douglas
What is Our Place?
Our Place is a place-based initiative from the Big Lottery Fund that aims to build stronger connections and relationships in communities, empowering local people and organisations to bring about positive and lasting changes in their neighbourhood. The Douglas area of Dundee has been selected as one of 7 Our Place areas in Scotland. The contract in Douglas is being delivered by Community Enterprise and Community Renewal.
As well as possible funding, there is also lots of help on the ground to develop the skills and confidence of local people and organisations in Douglas. The programme was launched in the Autumn of 2014 and will last 5 years. The contract in Douglas is being delivered by Community Enterprise Ltd and Community Renewal. The focus of the support is about getting local residents to work together to create a vision for the area (‘What kind of neighbourhood do we want this to be?’) and then work towards developing projects to help make that vision a reality. The Big Lottery has set up funds to help these projects happen.
