The Eldonian Village is the result of people taking control of their own lives. In 1978, when the Eldonians were faced
with their homes being demolished and their community broken up, they didn't just sit back and accept it, they got off
their backsides and made things happen. Today the Eldonians have 400 affordable rental homes, they have created
over 250 jobs, they provide a range of local services and recreation facilities all of which are owned and managed
by the local community. The Eldonians are an example to all communities and a testament to what people can
achieve when they decide to tackle the problems of their community themselves.
