Community Projects

Prospect is proud to be firmly rooted within the local community.

We listen to local priorities, work with community partners and raise funding to develop initiatives that help build the community of Wester Hailes. We support all sorts of projects from employability training to a Fun Run. Our current projects include:

  • Clovie Community Garden

    As well as fruit and vegetables, Clovie Community Garden grows friendships. Thanks to the generous support of the Big Lottery Fund, over the last 3 years Prospect has been supporting local residents involved in this exciting initiative. Edible Estates deliver a range of activities in the garden including grow your own courses, community food workshops, and children's natural play sessions.

  • From There To Here

    At Prospect we think that the community's history should be remembered and celebrated. We set up a blog and a Facebook page to make sure everyone could read about past achievements and see the photos from across the decades.

    Prospect supports this annual community celebration event which is organised by a partnership of local organisations and residents. A wide range of people take part round the 5k route including families, local groups and walkers with children in buggies. The emphasis is on having fun, with everyone receiving a medal. Prospect assists with the event registration and there is a Fun Run Fair Processing Notice which gives further details on how we collect, process and store personal data as part of the registration process.

  • Wester Hailes Community Trust

    Along with other local organisations and residents, we have been playing an active role in a new community capacity building initiative, the Wester Hailes Community Trust. The Hunter Foundation is supporting this venture with £65,000 over 3 years. The Trust is about local people making decisions. There is a Community Fund for actions and projects that help shape the future of Wester Hailes. In 2019 the Trust is focused on supporting activities that celebrate Wester Hailes' 50th Anniversary.
