About the project

Working with the Greenwich Cooperative Delivery Agency (GCDA), we have identified the opportunity to undertake a proof of concept (POC) on the Woolwich Common estate in Royal Greenwich. Like many places, residents within Woolwich Common feel left behind, particularly following COVID, and also as a community, unloved. The estate also is an area which has a higher level of deprivation than others in the borough, and suffers higher levels of crime & anti-social behaviour (ASB).

Building on existing GCDA presence and infrastructure, the POC will look to improve feelings of safety and community ownership within the wider estate whilst also improving the look and feel of the area. We also hope to identify and develop employment & training opportunities for local people, whilst using this POC as a potential beacon of best practice for other estates within Royal Greenwich, if not wider.
