Bellingham Community Project
An evaluation of our investment in the Bellingham Community Project, undertaken by the Centre for Urban and Community Research at Goldsmith’s College, University of London.
It is possible to make a major difference to the ‘feel’ of a neighbourhood, according to this report on the Bellingham Community Project which was set up by City Parochial Foundation in Lewisham.
The scheme is in one of the 10% most deprived wards in England where educational attainment has been low and worklessness is high. The Community Project and the Bellingham leisure & lifestyle centre based on playing fields owned by CPF have revitalised the area and brought real benefits to the local community.
