Project Aspire - our plans to tackle social inequality
Find out about the aims of Project Aspire and our plans to tackle social inequality in our borough.
Project Aspire is here because we believe every person matters - this fundamentally underpins all we do. We are committed with our partners to improving the lives of our residents.
Project 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 the Park Barn and Westborough areas.
We are determined to play our part in improving the health and well-being of our residents and to reduce social inequality and Project 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.

The Project Aspire Community Grants Scheme offers funding for community projects and initiatives that benefit local residents.
Our Handy Person Scheme may be able to assist you with small works to your property, such as plumbing repairs, alterations, and installing key safes, grab rails or banister rails. The scheme helps people aged over 60 or disabled or vulnerable who live in the borough.
Care and Repair offers support and assistance to eligible home owners and private renting tenants who want to adapt or improve their homes so they can carry on living independently. We can also help with essential repairs.
The Guildford Family Support Team Programme brings together a range of professionals to support vulnerable families.
Careline is a 24-hour emergency call system, helping people live independently in their own home, safe in the knowledge that help is at hand at the touch of a button.
