We’re starting to collect here ideas for community-based activities and initiatives, examples of activities community groups have tried, projects they have undertaken and their stories. Some may provide a flash of inspiration, others an opportunity to share experience and learning.

We’d love to hear you from you! Whether you have a ‘light bulb’ idea to share, or would like to tell us your story in more detail, your knowledge and experience can inspire and motivate others. Every initiative has something to teach us. Click here to add your activity.

We also want your feedback – let us know what you find useful, as well as what is not useful to you. These pages are a work-in-progress and the way they develop will be guided by you! Click here to leave feedback.
