Successful Funding Bid for 'Real Conversations’

New funding will help communities and service providers to explore and voice issues that matter most to them, through constructive facilitated conversations.

Transforming Lives Together are part of a consortium from the Church Urban Fund Together Network which submitted a successful funding bid to the Government Faith New Deal Pilot Fund. The funding will enable us to carry out a series of facilitated conversations with communities in the Tameside area about issues that matter most to them. Local people will be encouraged to say what they would like to see done to 'level up' in their area and will explore how to live well together. They will also discuss what Councils and other public service providers can do to tackle challenges. Participants will then be invited to attend an event where public sector representatives will be present and larger conversations can take place between them and community members.
