How to set up a community club or resident group in your local area or estate.

Community projects

Would you like to develop a community club or resident group in your local area or estate? If you would like to set up a new group we can help you achieve this. If you are an existing constituted resident group and have a community project you would like to develop, we are able to give advice, information and guidance. We are particularly interested in gardening projects and community projects which include all generations and are locally based. We have supported groups to set up a:

  • gardening group
  • parent and toddler group
  • community clubs (activities for all the family)
  • older people group

If you are interested in setting up a group, please contact the team for more information.
