Aspire - our plans to tackle social inequality

Find out about the aims of Aspire and our plans to tackle social inequality in our borough.

Project Aspire Banner

Aspire is here because we believe every person matters - this underpins all we do. We are committed with our partners to improving the lives of our residents.

Aspire is working with our diverse range of communities to strengthen the community fabric that makes Guildford a place where everyone is truly valued. We are focusing our efforts on our less advantaged communities and will continue to promote partnership solutions involving not only statutory agencies but most importantly the people who live here.

We will support communities to develop local solutions to local issues. Find out about our Community Grants Scheme which offers funding for community projects and initiatives to benefit residents in our borough.

We are determined to play our part in improving the health and well-being of our residents and to reduce social inequality. Aspire is about providing leadership, encouragement and support to all communities to build upon the talents and energy we see every day to build true communities where neighbours can rely on one another.

We will seek to empower all our communities to take an active role in the decisions that affect their lives.
