Working with the community - the Gainsborough Project
The project, for which we made the model in October, won a place in £33m impact investing experiment. The model was commissioned by the Lincolnshire Community Foundation (LCF) that was submitted yesterday with the bid for a place-based rejuvenation of Gainsborough developed by Sortified, West Lindsey District Council, and many other partners and local groups.
Our client, James Murphy, joint CEO of the Lincolnshire Community Foundation said “The news that Gainsborough is one of the six places to go forward in the Local Access fund development process is as fantastic as it is timely for the town. With positive impact for people, a culture of equity and fairness driving the collaborative work ahead, the next decade in Gainsborough is a truly unique opportunity to tackle long standing issues and injustices here.”
Special thanks to Sofia Coviello for co-organising the workshop and her contribution, Callum Inkster, James Hamilton, Lois Revill, and Julia Dobrowolska for their contributions to model making, and workshop staff for their help.
