The Network


The Network is a new project set-up in 2017 working with residents in Ashley, Easton, and Lawrence Hill to develop community-led networks that offer grassroots solutions to local issues.

Over the coming months our Network coordinators will be out and about in the three wards meeting and listening to people that want to connect with others in their communities, share their ideas, skills, and passions to kick start new projects.

These Resident Networkers will be trained in community organising and supported with resources to develop activities that meet local need. They will also be supported by a wider community of people involved in the Network and their neighbourhood.


The Network is a collaboration between Barton Hill Settlement, St Werburghs City Farm, Bristol Somali Resource Centre and Wellspring Healthy Living Centre.

Contact your local Network Coordinator if you want to:

  • Develop an event or project in your community
  • Find out what others are already doing
