Sincil Bank Community Work
Our Sincil Bank Community work, or Place-Based Social Action (PBSA), is a joint £4.5m programme between the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) and The National Lottery Community Fund using National Lottery funding. The programme aims to create positive change by enabling people, communities, local non-statutory organisations and the statutory sector to work collaboratively to create a shared vision for the future of their place and address local priorities through social action.
The Sincil Bank neighbourhood in Lincoln is one of only 10 places in the whole of England to be awarded PBSA funding. The Foundation’s Community team are the lead organisation for the programme which brings together the Foundation, City of Lincoln Council, Maze Matters, University of Lincoln, Voluntary Centre Services, and Investors in Lincoln to form the Sincil Bank Community Partnership.
The Sincil Bank Community Partnership works alongside the community to support local residents to reach their full potential, facilitating both community and personal change. We have adopted the Community Organising approach since 2013, reaching out and listening, connecting and motivating people to build their collective power. Community Organising is the work of bringing people together to take action around their common concerns and overcome social injustice.
We support and empower residents from the Sincil Bank area to undertake social action to create neighbourhood level change.
