Westview Community Association

To offer a combination of diverse facilities and resources which are accessible to the whole community. Through multi-agency working and partnerships, we will deliver a planned community programme. Consulting local people, we will respond by providing opportunities for skills/training/education, social, health and personal development. The ultimate aim is to develop an empowered and sustainable community.

Westview Community Association evolved from the Residents Association and during the past 12 years has worked in a dedicated and committed way to develop into an effective team, aiming to promote the benefit of the people of Westview. It works closely with such agencies as Wyre Borough Council, Regenda First/Wyre Housing Association, Blackpool, Wyre and Fylde Council of Voluntary Service, Lancashire Youth and Community Association, Health and Social Care Services, local schools and the Community Safety Partnership. It also works closely with local voluntary agencies.

The Management Committee has worked hard to include local residents in their projects and has held open days, consultation events plus many fundraising events, situated on the estate. We are committed to improving the skills and knowledge of local people as routes to employment, as well as leisure opportunities. We work with the Adult College at Lancaster and other partners to develop basic skills and adult learning such as numeracy and literacy DREAM SCHEME. Targeted at the 8 - 16 age group, this runs once a week at the Centre. Young people come along and carry out creative activities. Part of the Dream Scheme's objective is to promote active citizenship within the local community and the organiser arranges 'community jobs' that the young volunteers carry out, this could be washing peoples cars, helping with shopping or gardening. Each young volunteer collects points for the community work that they do and they can spend the points on an activity of their choice such as an adventure day out, visiting a Theme Park, going bowling or the cinema.
