People can make a difference with services and communities working together to deliver local action in response to local issues. Joint working between residents and services can lead to the most effective use of public sector resources, as both communities and services can deliver what they each do best. There are many initiatives where service resources deliver jointly with community action to deliver positive outcomes for communities. For example, Dementia Friendly Communities, Street clean ups/Litter picks and winter warmth projects etc. See our case studies page for more examples of amazing community action.
