Get involved in your local community

We can help you identify the opportunities and support you may need to get involved in your area.

Community Links

Our Community Links team help promote community involvement by:

  • Keeping local communities informed about what we are doing
  • Building a better understanding of what community activity is already happening
  • Identify and promote opportunities for local people to get involved
  • Helping local people and groups find the support they need to take part

If you have an idea to improve your local area or help people, or just want to get involved but don't know how, our Community Links officers can help you. They can find the right person for you to talk to, the right group for you to join or find the right support for your local project.

There are three Community Link officers that cover the borough's 14 village areas.
