Podcast episode six: Collective control with Bridgend Farmhouse

04 November 2020

Hello, and welcome to People’s Health Trust’s podcast. We’re here to talk all things health inequalities, so that we can create fairer places in which to grow, live, work and age.

Join me, Sophia, the Trust’s Senior Media and Communications Officer, as we learn more about the social, economic and environmental conditions that contribute to people living longer and healthier lives.

                                               

In this episode, I’ll speak to Will Golding from Bridgend Farmhouse funded through the Trust’s Active Communities programme and featured as a case study in the Trust’s latest Annual review.

Bridgend Farmhouse is a community owned property in Edinburgh, where the local people learn, work, and grow together to develop a flourishing community and place. We’ll speak about the journey of taking ownership of the once abandoned farmhouse, how it has since become a hub for the community, and how the project manages to keep individual and collective control, ensuring local people are making the decisions and taking action to address their chosen priorities.
