In 2013, Collyhurst in Manchester became a Big Local area; a partnership of tenants, businesses, schools and agencies, with a vision to improve the quality of life in Collyhurst.

Groundwork supported the community led partnership to develop a vision for the neighbourhood, achieving high levels of engagement via door knocking, workshops and interactive events and was a key partner in delivering a range of projects and improvements to the area.

One of these projects was Connecting Collyhust; a project which focused on developing signposted routes to join up the different estates within Collyhurst. The route was designed to celebrate Collyhurst’s history, community and green spaces.
