Jericho Road Solutions brings a wealth of experience to support local transformation.
NEIGHBOURHOOD COACHING & ADVICE
Independent and constructive support for individual places
Neighbourhoods need challenge and care, and so do the people who are trying to improve them. With experience, networks, knowledge and information from all over the country, we can help you unlock the hidden resources you need to achieve change without burning out.
Current and recent work: Ancoats Dispensary, Bognor and Colwyn Bay piers, Granby CLT, Our Yard in NW London, Somerstown Community Association.
Inspiring and supporting local people who are ambitious for their place.
Design input for policy, organisations & programmes to support local change
Alongside direct services to local groups, we work with government, funders and other national partners to develop and design policies, organisations and programmes that facilitate local change. These include: CADO Community Assets in Difficult Ownership, Community Organisers Ltd (CoCo), the Community Allowance, the Meanwhile Foundation, the Seaside Towns Economic Partnership, and the Demeter Service to support partnerships between communities and private developers. We are currently working with White Rock Trust in Hastings to develop and test the concept of self-renovating neighbourhoods. Later this year I will be starting a 4-year PhD on ‘Self renovating neighbourhoods as an alternative to gentrification’.
Enlightening conversation in mixed company
The history of the Salon stretches back via Enlightenment Paris to 16th century Italy, and in the Arab world to Sukynah bint al-Husayn in the 8th century. What they had in common was that they were convened by women (salonnières), they brought people together who would not normally meet, and they aimed ‘to please and to educate’, and often, to change the world. Jericho Road has held two modern Salon events in Hastings and Bradford where we ‘enlighten each other with the things we know and inspire each other to explore what we don’t understand’. We’re hoping to do one in London some time in 2015. To sign up for further information click here.
