Geographical remit: 


Our aim at Priors Park Neighbourhood Project is to deliver services to our residents, especially those most marginalised and disadvantaged in society, which promote four basic themes:

Education – build relationships with the local community to engage them in a supportive, safe environment where they can receive training, and advice with issues facing them. 

Health and Wellbeing – engage people in positive activities to encourage awareness of healthy eating & living without feeling isolated.

Community Safety & Cohesion – working in partnership with local schools, children’s centres, housing associations, PCSOs, Tewkesbury Food Bank, and other charities on Priors Park Estate to build a safer area for all to live.
