Developing a Community Idea

Do you have an idea for a community project but do not know where to start? Is there anything holding you back from making your ideas reality?

You may be a group of residents or an individual. You might want to deliver a one-off event such as a community picnic or something more regular like helping an isolated neighbour to get to the shops each week.

Here are some examples of what might possible in your local community:

  • Befriending the elderly
  • Community car sharing
  • Setting up youth clubs
  • Turning 'grotspots' into community gardens
  • Art or heritage projects
  • Community litter picking
  • Computer skill sharing

Whatever your idea, this guide has been designed to give you a brief overview on what you might need to consider to turn your ideas into reality.
