There is a series of public meetings for local residents being held across the district, which will be launched in Bradford City Centre on Thursday 6 November 6pm to 8pm.
Come along to your local ward forum to help prioritise and contribute ideas and suggestions for your local area.
Bradford District Community Fund has launched the Winter Warmth community grants scheme.

The scheme runs together with programmes such as Be-neighbourly and the Warm Homes Healthy People (WHHP) programme."
