Communities and localities

Information about where you live and how we work with communities on local issues and projects. How to apply for grants and funding for community projects

We work closely with communities, councillors and volunteer groups to deliver projects in your local area.

Locality boards

Our locality boards promote close working with our communities. They make sure that local voices are heard when we develop our services and policies.

We have support teams that work with residents and community groups on issues that are important to their  area.

Contact our locality teams in your area.
