Getting involved in and contributing to the wider community can be incredibly rewarding and creates connections with the people around you. This may involve doing something nice for a friend or a stranger. It may involve volunteering your time or joining a community group. We aim to maximise the opportunities for you to contribute.

  • We support volunteering by working with a range of partner organisations
  • We are working with residents on some estates to develop ‘good neighbour’ schemes, which helps people to keep an eye on each other and support one another if needed
  • Many estates organise fundraising events for a range of causes (a popular activity at the moment is bake-offs)
