Your Swinton Neighbourhood Management Team includes Karen Smith (Neighbourhood Manager), Kelly Wray (Neighbourhood Development Officer) and Jo Skeels (Admin Officer).
Karen and the team work with residents across Swinton and Pendlebury to make sure that they feel informed about what is happening in their area, empowered to have a say in decisions being made and able get involved to make improvements for themselves.
They work closely with local partners such as the Neighbourhood Policing Team, housing agencies, local businesses and youth providers to ensure that they respond to neighbourhood issues in the most effective way.
They also support the Swinton Community Committee, which brings together local councillors and community groups to identify local priorities and allocate local budgets.
Each year the Community Committee identifies local priorities. For 2015-16 they include:
- Working to increase footfall and improve the vibrancy of Swinton town centre
- Supporting young people to get engaged in positive activities
- Maximising the use of green spaces in the neighbourhood
- Supporting community groups and individuals with growing projects.
