What is Build Your Neighbourhood (BYN)?

BYN is a program for City West Housing residents to submit ideas for projects to make your neighbourhood and community better with a body, mind and soul theme.

Successful projects get funding to make those ideas a reality.

It’s about building happy and thriving communities.

We believe that you know what’s best for your community and this is a way of getting your say in the types of programs that CWH runs.

The purpose of BYN is to help residents:

  • connect with each other
  • feel engaged
  • get involved in your communities and buildings.

The program is designed to promote your health, happiness and wellbeing.

BYN aims to foster inclusive and accessible communities where residents are proud to live, feel safe and empowered – and where residents have a genuine say in the way we do things.

Looking for great projects

We believe getting to know your neighbours can be done through enriching your body, mind and soul. You should also think about ways that we can keep connected and thrive during lockdown. We’ll look to support projects that activate the:

  • Body: indoor or outdoor activities.
  • Mind: learning, meditation, discussion.
  • Soul: culture, cooking, creativity, gardening.
