Mission Statement

Oak Tree NMT coordinates community activity in the local area to ensure that everyone works together for the good of the estate. This involves directly supporting community groups and volunteers, liaising with local service providers and managing partnership work and communications.

About Oak Tree NMT

Oak Tree Neighbourhood Management Team (NMT) was established in 2004 on the Oak Tree Lane Estate in Mansfield with the aim of improving the lives of the people living and working on the Oak Tree Lane Estate.

The NMT is governed by a committee of volunteers who drive the work of the organisation and provide the link between the residents and service providers on the estate.

We produce a local newsletter ‘Oak Tree News’  which is distributed to all residents and feed in to the Partnership Forum that works to an action plan based on priorities identified by local people.

We helped the Ciaran Sweeney Memorial Fund group organise free swimming lessons over the summer holidays to help children and young people from Oak Tree feel safer in the water.

We also worked in partnership to put on events such as the Santa’s Grotto at Barrowhill Community Link at Christmas where children from Oak Tree School and Children’s Centre received a present from Santa!

Although Barrowhill is now closed and the Lottery funded project has ended, the Street Champions project is ongoing. Street Champions are local volunteers who support their community by providing information to their neighbours about local issues that affect them.

We are always looking for new people to join us though volunteering or simply helping out with one off community events and activities. If you would like to find out more about us, please email nmt@oaktreepartnership.co.uk
