OL1-Oldham - Not just another residents group!
We are working closely with many agencies to help everyone understand how they can get the most from public services and play their part in helping to create a healthy, safe
and proud community.
the group do?
We freely support local people who are struggling with things that affect their lives and give them useful contact details to inform them of the help they can expect from each service.
We talk to local services about individual and collective problems local people tell us about and ask the services to actively assist with those problems.
We talk to local people about how each and every one of us can help to keep our areas clean, safe, healthy and happy. We inform our communities about the BGreen Community Agreements and actively encourage others to contribute, agree, and take part.
We meet regularly and welcome all residents of the BGreen and OL1 postcode areas.
Our meetings are held at places where everyone can feel comfortable talking about things
that concern or affect them, knowing that their concerns will be addressed.
We do this voluntarily, as good neighbours who are committed to caring for our community.
What is a community agreement?
A Community Agreement is an agreement designed and agreed by the residents and the providers of services in a certain area.
The service providers detail what they do, and how, where and when.
We, the residents, for our part have specific roles and responsibilities within our areas to help keep our communities clean, safe and healthy as well as being areas we can be proud to call home.
This includes helping and supporting each other.
What do the
Keeping the area healthy and clean and reporting issues rather than just leaving them.
Help and advice with problems such as debt, ASB, health & wellbeing, isolation and heating etc.
Reporting crime in a way that is confidential.
Being good neighbours and promoting help for friends and family who may be finding
