Project themes and focus

By working with our customers and residents of Ditton we have identified four key themes and focus which Destination Ditton will focus on.


Green and Open Spaces

We are looking at the design and layout of the estate to see if we can improve the green spaces and environment.



We're supporting and developing individuals with our partners to deliver and establish training programmes and create employment opportunities for residents.


Education and Training

We’re helping improve employment and training opportunities for residents, so they can succeed in education and training and gain the skills they need to secure an apprenticeship or employment.


Health and Wellbeing

We’ll be supporting and funding projects to support health and wellbeing services to improve the lives of local residents.
