Active Streets Share
Connecting with our streets
Active Streets Share brings neighbours together to support their streets, residents, and the wider community.
These street networks help unite neighbours and give you a platform to share resources and discuss important ideas that will benefit your local area.
We also connect street networks with each other and volunteers to share space, time, resources, food, and ideas. It is fast, free, friendly and you can help those most in need 😊
Giving and Sharing
There are many ways streets can give and share – these small acts of kindness make a big impact.
Across Birmingham, many residents have provided neighbours hope and support as well as organising collections for food banks, displaying a rainbow in the window, clapping for our key workers, and even sharing household items such as plants, books and tools.
We want to continue helping communities to build on this and are working closely with #Feedbirmingham, The Real Junk Food Project, volunteers and mutual aid groups across the city, our support to local residents plays a vital role in making this work for everybody.
You can do this by sharing:
- Street collections of food and other essential supplies, such as toiletries, cleaning products and clothing – We’ll then be in touch to guide you through how to get started, and to understand what support you need.
- Photographs, inspiring stories and your tips on how other residents and streets can come together to stay connected, active and support those in need. We can add these to a community resource page on our website to inspire and help others get involved.
- Space– How would you like to safely share the space on your streets to build a stronger community and look after those who need it during Covid-19 and after lockdown restrictions are lifted. We are here to offer any support you need to kick start this.
Please sign-up your street to start sharing!
