City Lab is a new way of funding which brings groups together to explore key issues in Bristol. The project is led by City Funds, a partnership between Bristol City Council, Bristol & Bath Regional Capital and Quartet Community Foundation. 

The project is looking for an organisation interested in creating and connecting people to welcoming spaces in Withywood. The selected organisation will explore bringing the Tenants’ Centre back into use, where people can get support to improve their wellbeing and address concerns such as isolation, anxiety and loneliness and can be signposted to other services.

The selection criteria for the organisation are that they:

  • Are currently or have recently delivered services in the local area
  • Have a diverse team who have experience of living or working in an area of socio-economic hardship
  • Can demonstrate their understanding of the needs of the local community
  • Be committed to collaborating with an Advisory Group of local people and to shaping the project to reflect what the group puts forward
  • Be running activities and services which are led by and actively involve the local community
  • Be open to feedback from the local community on their impact to inform future activities and be willing to work with the Advisory Group to evaluate the project.
