Support and resources for local community groups

Support we're giving to community groups and how to find your nearest community notice board

Support from us

Since Neighbourhood Partnerships have ended we're providing some support to help set up new community-led arrangements for the future.

If you want to find out about your local community-led arrangements or who covers your area, check your neighbourhood partnership's page.

If you don't know what ward you're in you can use our ward finder.

Support resources

We’ve been working with communities so that they can continue to have a voice and influence local decisions.

The Building Stronger Communities (pdf, 470k) (opens new window) document lists:

  • what support has been given to local groups
  • possible future support

Our Community Spaces Checklist (pdf, 130k) (opens new window) can help organisations make community spaces as welcoming and inclusive as possible.


Local noticeboards are often the best place to find information on what's happening in your area.
