Vision

We believe we can make an even bigger impact by continuing to leverage the commercial lease and relationships to improve the community facilities and lives of the people living in the local area.

To achieve this Bailliefields Social and Community hub’s vision is:

  • Build on the work the club currently does with disability motivating groups and individuals to be part of an environment that is inclusive, safe and creates a sense of belonging.
  • Encourage participation in sport and social activities of the local elderly community that will tackle isolation and loneliness.
  • Connect the local community to the surrounding natural environment of Rumford, Ercall Woods, the Union canal and local cycle and walking paths.
  • Promotes growing, biodiversity and cooking through community allotments.
  • Increase and enhance inclusion for everyone regardless of circumstance, ethnicity and social background.

 

Values

The Bailliefields Community Hub core values are:

  • Collaborative and Creative
  • Innovative and Inspirational
  • Proactive and Professional
  • Open and Honest
  • Passionate and Proud
  • Trustworthy and Responsible

 

Aims

Reduce Social Isolation and Increased Sense of Community

Our communities want a space to sit, chat and continue to build friendships. Throughout the year we already run regular bake off/cooking from around the world workshops. We have also worked with community cooking and food organisations that are keen to contribute towards a possible ‘Social Café' in the future.

We want to build on this and create a social enterprise that cooks and serves the best that can be sourced from local and Scottish produce. Its priority will be affordability and working with the allotment holders and local suppliers. We would look to run monthly cooking workshops, which will be directly targeted to the people who need that opportunity such as the elderly, those living alone, and the communities who live in local SIMD areas.

We are in effect creating a sport and community hub to provide services to the local community to improve the lives of local residents.
