Join us to help make your community a happier, healthier place to live
Active Communities is a new and exciting initiative that aims to create innovative solutions that make it easier for people to access social and physical activity. We are doing things differently! This means working to find lots of opportunities to come together and ways to participate in creating happier and healthier lives in local communities.
We have reached over 100 locally active citizen-based organisations who told us that they want to collaborate and that the best resource is people power! There are lots of people like you who care about their local community who have knowledge and skills they want to share or that they need.
So, what’s the crowd and why should you join?
The Crowd is a network of local citizens who want to see positive changes in their community and where people tell us their ideas to make it a healthier and happier place to live. Whether you’re a parent, a student, working, unemployed or a volunteer we’d love you to join us and get involved. Start by telling us your ideas to help change the area you live for the better!
Join the Crowd and tell us what’s good about your community, what needs to get better and what you want to do or change to help people get out and about to enjoy the streets, parks and open spaces.
If you opt in to join the crowd we will keep you informed of what is happening as part of the crowd movement, including local community meetings and actions, by the method of communication that you choose and will occasionally ask for your views about wellbeing and community activities and events by survey or quick poll.
Our promise to you
In return, we promise to provide the Crowd and its volunteers the resources, tools, training and, in some cases, funding to help bring these fantastic ideas to life. Let’s change your community!
