Northam Local Conversation


In 2016, West Itchen  Community Trust  secured People’s  Health Trust (PHT) funding to support  community projects  in Northam. 


We ran a number of  activities and community events in Northam (photos below) and spoke to hundreds of local people about their hopes and dreams for the area.

Now we are looking to work with local residents to help you drive the change you want to see around you. And in coming months we will be hosting a number of initiatives in Northam again.


We want to work with residents to develop ideas they want to see, ensuring that people living in Northam are funding and supporting projects for Northam to meet local priorities.


No matter what experience or time you can give, you can be part of making Northam a better place to live, grow and work.
