Community Supported Projects
In addition to the funder projects delivered by The Broomhouse Centre, the Centre also supported other projects in the community in partnership with other agencies.
Joining The Dots
‘Joining the Dots’, is a local action group, which focuses on this ward, the Broomhouse, Sighthill and Parkhead area, and is a partnership of: community based voluntary groups, City of Edinburgh Council, Napier University, GP’s and NHS staff. The partnership held a series of successful community consultations in partnership with Edinburgh Napier University, and this was used as a case study on community engagement by the university at the Scottish Parliament in 2017. From the responses, three priorities have been identified: better communication, so local people know what is going on, more support for young people and food poverty. These priorities will be taken forward with an action plan in 2018. Meeting monthly, helps this build trust and relationships, developing our shared knowledge of local service provision, and also building a collective knowledge of the community. ‘Joining the Dots’ is chaired by the Broomhouse Centre CEO.
