From Grassroots to Boardroom – Oldham Council

Posted on 16th May, 2019

Community involvement in Oldham means more than asking residents for their views. We’re empowering local people to take ownership, as part of our ambition to create a co-operative borough where everyone does their bit, and everybody benefits.  Projects include:

  • VEG IN THE PARK – a grassroots project
  • OLDHAM FOOD NETWORK a co-operative approach
  • GREEN DIVIDEND – co-operative communities
  • GET OLDHAM GROWING – creating the right climate
  • GROWING OLDHAM: Feeding Ambition Partnership – the boardroom

The most effective way to design services and deliver outcomes that matter to residents is to do it with them; or even better, to create the right conditions for them to do it for themselves.
