Focusing on the future

Burngreave Community Action Forum’s AGM in October started by demonstrating its links with other Burngreave organisations – by sharing lunch with the Messenger after its own AGM.

This pooling of resources reflects BCAF’s position at the centre of a network of other groups and activists around the area. This was the first AGM of the new BCAF Ltd: the new committee realised that becoming a company limited by guarantee was essential to take on forthcoming challenges in Burngreave in a time of reduced funding.

New Deal and the Community Assembly made presentations to the meeting about how their work could impact on local residents.

The new committee focussed on what practical things BCAF needs to do so that it can keep benefiting the area, despite lack of funding. One of those things will be to support the organisation of the summer festivals, it will also be supporting adult learning in the area and enabling local networking through its mailing lists about jobs, learning, young people, health, refugees and asylum seekers.

If you would like to know more about BCAF or get involved, contact the office on 272 8008.
