Why does Worcester need a SOUP?
We think there is a need to encourage the development of simple ideas that can make a big difference to the people of Worcester, helping people make valuable personal connections across the City. Ultimately making Worcester an even better place to live, work and visit.
It is often difficult and time consuming to get a small bit of funding to accelerate the progression of those fantastic ideas. Equally, it can be challenging to promote a project in early stage and get the encouragement to keep going when times are tough.
We want to create grassroots events where Worcester people, regardless of background or particular passion or interest, can come together to share their ideas on a regular basis and encourage each other to progress those ideas further.
