Get inspired and take local action

Many of us want to make a positive change for good in our communities, whether that is by volunteering, setting up a group to tackle an issue or simply helping our neighbour.

We can help you find different ways to take social action in your community. Need a bit of inspiration? Take a look at our 52 (almost) painless things you can do in your community leaflet or our Building Connected Communities poster for some ideas.

If you want to volunteer, take a look at our volunteering page.

It may be that you want to set up a group or run a community event but don’t know where to start. Whatever the scale of your idea, whether big or small, we can help. Contact us on or call 01904 704177.
