How to build community

We want residents to live in strong vibrant communities by supporting them to be good neighbours, and encouraging activities that connect them to one another, their estate and the local area. We will develop opportunities for residents to lead and participate in activities that interest them, make the most of their skills and build shared community resources. Each of our estates is different and the breadth and type of activities that builds community at each of our estates will vary. However, the core activities we will support at all estates are:

  • Residents groups and social clubs
  • Residents' groups that welcome new people to the estate
  • Applications for our Greenshoots grants and access to our community fundraising portal
  • A community noticeboard
  • Projects that help residents get online and use the internet
  • Helping residents attend local events and activities
  • Adult learning opportunities
