Getting involved in the local community

Getting involved in the local community

There are many ways you can get involved in the local community, from community associations to groups that are active in local areas. You can get involved with local forums that advocate for groups of people, like older people or people with learning disabilities, or you can get involved in helping others or shaping local services. There are local networks, community websites, support groups, and many more ways to be more involved in your local community.
