Swan Housing Association, in partnership with Basildon Borough Council (BBC) has announced the successful recruitment of the first trustees for the new Beechwood Village Community Trust.
The Trust which was established by members of Swan’s Resident Involvement and Community Development team as well as officers from BBC was created to:
1. Encourage inclusive social integration and positive activities
2. Develop community safety initiatives
3. Provide support for learning / training and development opportunities
4. Promote the protection of the environment
The Swan and BBC representatives have been approved and one local resident has already been recruited to the Trust, which will deliver a programme of projects and initiatives to enhance the lives of the individuals that live on the Beechwood and Craylands estates in Basildon.
There is still time for additional members to join, as Swan and BBC are looking for both local and independent volunteers who are keen to make a difference and who have the time and energy to help the trust to flourish.
