Men in Sheds Project

Men in Sheds Project

The Men in Sheds project supports local communities from across the East Riding, North & North East Lincolnshire to develop Men’s Sheds in their locality, where an identified need has been established. Sheds are predominately aimed at men but usually anyone over 18 can get involved. Shed’s are a place where people can take part in activities, share, and learn new skills, share ideas, and make new friendships within a supportive environment.

Voluntary Car Service

Voluntary Car Service

As from 21 September the Voluntary Car Service which operates in North Lincolnshire and North East Lincolnshire will reopen following suspension in March due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Funded by North Lincolnshire Council we are delighted to be back albeit operating a very limited service. We will be reviewing the service on a very regular basis as we follow guidance set by the Government and the Community Transport Association. Key points: • We can only offer transport for essential medical appointments. Other requests will be signposted to other Organisations and solutions sought • We can transport only one person per booking • Passengers must wear face masks/coverings. Our Drivers will wear a mask also • Cars will be cleaned before and after each passenger • No cash payments – invoices will be sent direct from the office. Our registered passengers have all received the up to date guidance by post during the past few weeks. New updates and future changes to the service will be posted here.

Community Led Plans support

A Community Led Plan, formerly known as a Parish Plan, is a step by step process for communities to develop a plan for the future, which takes into account the needs of all who live and work in the community. The Action Plan developed as part of the process, sets out a vision and how this will be achieved. Community Led Plans are suitable for any size of community, be that rural or urban and take on average 12 – 18th months to complete.

Neighbourhood Development Plans support

Community Review

What is a Community Review? It is a short community consultation exercise that will identify the prioritises, the needs and aspirations and the actions that local residents would like to implement in their community. Lengthy consultation processes are unsuitable for smaller communities, so Humber & Wolds Rural Action will provide a support package to enable these settlements to conduct this process and give the community a voice in decision making.
