Community Engagement Ambassadors at Curry in the Park 2022

 

The Community Engagement Ambassador (CEA) scheme is an exciting new pilot project funded for the 22/23 academic year. The UoN Community Engagement Team has recruited 12 current students to support community cohesion initiatives in three specific zones across Lenton and Radford where there is a large population of privately rented student properties. The CEAs will be employed and managed by UoN working up to 6 hours each per week. This will equate to over 4,000 hours of work across the academic year.

 

Purpose of the initiative:

  •  To build positive and more longstanding relationships in the community between all residents
  • Promote respectful behaviour and raise awareness of living in a mixed and diverse community
  • Improve awareness of sustainability amongst students through better household recycling and litter picking as we support Nottingham’s Carbon Neutral 2028 ambition
  • Promote more consistent and ongoing work with partners such as Community Protection Officers (CPOs) and Police
  • Improve neighbourhood safety through a variety of crime reduction initiatives and campaigns

 

What the ambassadors will do:

  • 12 Ambassadors will proactively patrol defined engagement zones across Lenton and Radford
  • Each Ambassador will work up to 6 hours a week
  • Offer proactive advice to residents when issues are identified (contaminated recycling, bins on streets, build-up of excess waste, parking issues)
  • Record and escalate serious issues to the relevant authority
  • Act as a feedback tool to the University regarding the residential experience in the defined zones
  • Support community events and projects, encouraging student participation 

 

 

Jamie Dickinson, Community Engagement Manager.

 “Our Community Engagement Ambassadors are all current University of Nottingham students living in and around the areas they are tasked with patrolling and improving. We have recruited an enthusiastic, dedicated and sustainably minded team to undertake this exciting new project”

 “We want all residents to benefit from this additional support as we aim to maintain Nottingham as a clean, green and great place to live, work and study. This project will evolve over time and we welcome any feedback by contacting our department with your suggestions”

 “Working closely with partners such as Nottingham City Council, Nottinghamshire Police, local residents groups and the Students’ Union will ensure we have a service that can adapt and respond to the needs of our mixed and diverse community.”
