Raising Active Citizens


Raising Active Citizens is a partnership between Up Our Street and Felix Road Adventure Playground building on both our strengths to give children and their parents a voice in their community, increase their capacity for action, provide the skills and inspiration to create change and create opportunities for increased social connections.

This project will include:

  • Neighbourhood Conversations at the playground on themes chosen by children and their parents as being important to them.
  • Tuesday coffee morning for families with pre-school children to connect with one another and learn about neighbourhood activities and support available to them.
  • Sunday gardening club for children to grow their own food and cook it at the playground.
  • litter busters group doing litter picks in the local community.
  • Support Felix Road Children's Council to be involved in the development of the playground as community hub.

This project is funded by Awards for All and Police Crime Commissioner's Fund.
