What is our witham?

In 2012 a wide range of local community organisations, councils and businesses came together with a plan to raise the aspiration of young people in Witham under the banner of the Government’s Community Budget initiative. In 2013 the Witham Boys’ Brigade co-ordinated a series of young people led projects to raise aspirations. Out of these Our Witham was born.

Our vision is to improve the lives of young people in Witham. We want to do this by raising aspiration, attainment, health and wellbeing.

We want to kick-start a conversation in Witham on how we can all help young people to succeed.


Please explore this website to find our more about what we are planning, and you can also download a copy of our prospectus for more details:


You can also pick up a hard copy of the prospectus from the Community Hub in the Newlands Shopping Centre or other outlets around Witham.
