    Up and down the UK, people are getting together and making things happen in their communities. From community gardens to youth clubs, Friends of Parks groups to local sports clubs, people give up their time to improve the quality of life in their neighbourhood. While the government’s Civil Society Strategy says that it wants people to be empowered to take responsibility for their neighbourhoods, it pays little attention to the voices and needs of community groups who are doing just that.

    This research set out to address three questions:

    • What motivates people to get involved in action in their communities?
    • What benefits are realised as a result of community action?
    • What support and resources are needed to enable communities to take action in their local area?
