Bounce Back

Bounce Back

Supported by the Development Trust Association Scotland, Bounce Back was a community initiative organized by the Stove Network to support community groups and entrepreneurs in NW Dumfries to help mitigate the effects of welfare reform.

Over the past twelve months Bounce Back launched two rounds of the Ignition Fund to help community groups and individuals by awarding funding for new projects, events, sustainable activities or business start-ups, decided by the NW Dumfries community.

Alongside this, workshops on sewing, creative writing, film screenings and a temporary artist residency in the Family Centre of Lochside were established, the culmination of which is in January 2018 where the Family Centre will be revitalized with a new look and design following the artist residency, which aspires to engage the local community in creating new public artworks.
