ACTION FOR NEIGHBOURHOOD CHANGE
Action for Neighbourhood Change (ANC) Lotherton-Caledonia is located in the Lotherton Pathway community, which is part of Lawrence Heights, and is one of the many neighbourhoods supported by North York Community House.
The goal of ANC is to build safe, active, healthy communities. To strengthen a neighbourhood, we must all work together – local businesses, governments, volunteers, community agencies and most importantly, the residents themselves. For this reason, ANC supports local residents to play a central role in shaping their neighbourhood. ANC Lotherton has been empowering residents to take charge in their community since 2007.
Some of the activities led by residents to promote community connections and healthy living include a thriving community garden, weekly Tea Café, community kitchens, the annual Lotherton Community Festival, a multi-media project for youth, and a number of cultural celebrations.
