The Development Trust Association (DTA) awarded the Chris Woodcock ‘Excellence in Community Enterprise’ Award to Action Acton for its Acton Street Market.
The panel agreed that “This was a really great example of a project that engages with diverse communities, is creative and inspiring in approach, transcends boundaries, improves appreciation between different groups and has had a positive impact on individuals.”
Rod Cahill, Chair of Action Acton Board told ActonW3: “Acton Market project is an excellent example of where a local Development Trust has worked positively in partnership with London Borough of Ealing, the London Development Agency and the local community to create real, practical benefits for our diverse communities”.
Councillor Jason Stacey, Leader of Ealing Council said: This award helps vindicate the idea that Councils can learn a lot and deliver better results when working in partnership with community organisations. We were very happy working with Action Acton to deliver what has proved a successful project in helping to regenerate Acton.
