The Southall Partnership is an area based partnership project which has grown out of Ealing’s Local Strategic Partnership. The members of the partnership include Southall Community Alliance, Ealing Council, Met Police, NHS, JobCentrePlus, and Ealing, Hammersmith & West London College. The Southall Charter (which came out of the Southall Partnership) was launched on December 13th, 2012 and sets out a Vision for Southall’s future. Developed with the community, businesses and all those who work to make Southall a better place, the Charter focuses in on the actions needed to help turn the Vision into reality. The Charter’s Vision calls on all those with a stake in Southall to work together to renew pride in Southall, building on the ambition of its culturally diverse community, creating a place where the potential of all is truly realized. An engagement exercise called the Big Conversation demonstrated that people wanted to see actions to improve Southall as a place and to reinforce its strengths as a community. Those surveyed stated all parties have a role to play, and as a result 19 new projects and project areas were created to reflect this need for everyone to pull together and play their part. The 19 projects are split up into five main work programmes:
Southall Together is about behavioural change and promoting inclusivity. This ranges from tackling some of the negative issues raised through the Big Conversation, such as how we treat our local environment and anti-social behaviour to promoting inclusivity by having a range of events for the whole community throughout the year.
Southall Massive: Small is about tapping into the power of the community and local businesses to make lots of small changes and improvements, which together can make a massive impact on how Southall is experienced and perceived by residents and visitors alike.
Southall Town is a series of improvements to the town centre, working in close partnership with our local businesses.
Southall Living works with a range of partners to improve people’s quality of life in aseries of key areas like the provision of quality housing, promoting healthier lifestyles and providing our young people with a good start in life.
Southall Transform is a series of aspirational projects ranging from a new Community Hub in Old Southall to a series of enhancements to Southall’s streets. Some of these projects have funding, others represent a statement of the community’s aspiration, which the partners will explore to see if they can help make them a reality.
