Jaywick Sands Revival Community Interest Company
JSR CIC is a community run company, dedicated to supporting local people to make our small village a better place to live and work.
We aim to represent all parts of the community and are open to membership from everyone who lives, works or has a close association with Jaywick Sands. Registered with Companies House as a CIC in April 2018, there are currently 6 Directors on the board.
All are residents from a range of backgrounds who bring a diverse set of skills and experiences. All volunteer their services and do not receive payment for their work. All share a vision for Jaywick Sands and a commitment to dispel the myths about our beautiful resort. We have been working with DERIC (Developing and Empowering Resources in Communities) who were asked to get involved by the Coastal Communities Team (CCT) for Jaywick Sands.
Following extensive consultation with local people, it was identified that while there is potential to improve on the wide range of things happening already, the community faces many challenges. In the first instance it was identified that a community hub be established to be a base bringing people together in order to tackle the many issues that need addressing. A place where all are welcome, a centre for information, support and guidance. A friendly place for all ages to go, hosting various events, groups and classes or simply somewhere to go for a chat.
