Our project is led by residents from Wormholt and White City. We have a Partnership Board and voting members have to live, work or play in the area. Nonvoting members are people who have skills that could be useful to the Partnership or work for organisations that provide services to the area. There have to be between 8 – 12 voting members and at least 51 % of the Partnership has to be living within the ward of Wormholt and White City. This helps to keep to one of the keys aims of the project, to truly enable our community to better identify local needs and take action in response to them.
