Hilgrove Community Action is a new project for community-led change on the Hilgrove estate.
Humans of Hilgrove
We’re doing a project to celebrate our Hilgrove community.
We want 20 people from the Hilgrove estate to take part. You’ll have a beautiful photograph taken (you get a copy to keep) and share stories about who you are and where you live. Your photo and stories will be shown on the estate as part of the outdoor Humans of Hilgrove exhibition and online.
We’ll have a socially-distanced launch party for you to attend too. Sign up to take part by clicking the button below, or by calling Maddie on 07526 555697 between 9am and 5pm on weekdays. You deserve to be celebrated!
Introducing the Hilgrove Community Organisers
Hilgrove Community Action is a new project where residents will be supported to make the changes they would like to see on the estate. Residents' voices are at the heart of this project. Hilgrove Community Organisers work alongside residents on ideas to make the estate a great place to live and grow up.
Hilgrove has been home to me for the last 26 years and I have really enjoyed living in such a vibrant community.
Having this opportunity during lockdown has been inspiring and exciting. I would like to use my experience within mental health / adult social care to gain insight of the communities’ needs, advocate and empower residents on what matters to them.
I'm Leo, one of your Community Organizers on Hilgrove estate. I have lived here since 2014 and I think our estate is a great place to live, and together we can make it a fantastic one!
I have embarked on this journey with North Camden Zone to bring about positive change in our community and to inspire more people to collaborate in shaping our estate the way we want it to look.
So let's get to know each other better, let's be outspoken about our ideas and if you spot me around the estate, do say hi!
Hello Hilgrove Estate! My name is Sharon, and I’m excited to be one of your Community Organisers. I’ve lived on the Hilgrove Estate for 12 years and love our green spaces. During lockdown, you could often find me pottering around my building’s communal garden.
The Community Organisers are here to help support everyone living in Hilgrove. All of us live on the estate, and we’re all committed to strengthening our community. If there’s something on your mind about life here, we want to hear about it.
I’m looking forward to meeting more of my neighbors and learning about their experiences living on the estate. There’s a lot to celebrate about our community, and I hope our work will make Hilgrove feel more like home for everyone.
Hi! I'm Kaamila, and I have lived in Hilgrove for 15 years.
My goal as a Community Organiser is to empower people with the aim of increasing the influence of underrepresented groups, in policies and decision making affecting their lives.
I hope to learn how to research effectively and find out what the community really cares about. I am passionate about bringing about positive change, whether it be on a larger or smaller scale
I'm Anaghaa, your Community Organiser. I'm just over a year in this community but it has felt like home right since day one.
I vividly recall reading about the opportunity to become a Community Organiser and literally jumping with excitement. I already had ideas and plans for making this community an amazing place, a community people will strive to emulate.
As an educator, my 'why' for taking up this role was quite straightforward – I want to make a difference in the lives of children and young people. I look forward to learning more about their needs, ambitions and how our community can be their strong support system.
