Waymarking works with communities to shape and influence how their neighbourhoods are developing, through community-led planning, regeneration and economic development. Waymarking is led by director Sarah Spanton, who has a background in the arts and creative sectors, which is fused with urban design and community-led regeneration techniques to create bespoke place-based capacity building programmes. Recent and current projects include: supporting community business development in Gipton, Leeds (commissioned by Space2, Leeds) and Manningham, Bradford (commissioned by Power to Change), community-led healthier neighbourhood programmes in Woodhouse Park Manchester (commissioned by MCRactive). These co-designed and co-produced programmes have included supporting communities to: undertake their own research into health in their neighbourhoods; staff and participant training on setting up community businesses and on neighbourhood economic resilience, including setting up inspirational study visits. Community members working with Waymarking, find and amplify their voices, develop agency and realise their potential power as a group, and lead on local regeneration where they live and work.
