Our priorities

Each year we will look at what matters to our local area the most, using data and local intelligence to help us determine the priorities our board will focus on. Some of this information can be found in the Amersham Community Board Profile (PDF document) and Amersham Public Health Profile (PDF document). We will involve residents, partners, local groups and organisations in understanding what the local issues and priorities are.

Priorities for 2020/21 are:

  • Covid-19 Recovery
  • Village and town centre revival
  • Green issues and the environment
  • Health and wellbeing of young people

These priorities will help us determine where we take action and allocate funding to improve the local area.

Apply for funding

If you have a project that relates to one of the priorities above, you can apply for funding online.

Working Groups

We take actions on issues linked to our priorities. To do this, we have working groups that bring together board members and representatives from the community and relevant partner organisations.

Working groups identify and discuss issues linked to our priorities, and we consider project ideas and requests for funding linked to these issues. Current working groups are:

  • Coronavirus recovery and ongoing support
  • Village and town centre revival
  • Health and wellbeing of young people
  • Communication strategy
  • Transport

If you're interested in getting involved with one of the working groups or would like to discuss an idea you may have for a project, contact us at [email protected]
