Tilbury Community Forum was launched as part of the Community Governance programme. There are a number of forums covering most communities in Thurrock. The advantage of having a forum is that local people can have a say on issues or decisions that affect their community.
One of the roles of the Tilbury Forum is to establish a link between Thurrock Council and other service providers such as the police and health within a community and give local people the opportunity to raise concerns or hear about local plans.
As an independent community group, we are able to apply for funding and use the money to enhance or create various local projects or initiatives such as community gardens, park facilities and much more.
The Tilbury Forum gives residents a chance of being involved in local decisions, so why not pop along to their next meeting, visit www.thurrockcommunityforums.org.uk for more information.
