Community Friendly Nottinghamshire is a Nottinghamshire County Council project focusing on helping communities come together to act on shared visions, enhancing neighbourhoods and overcoming concerns. Using a Community Organising approach Neighbourhood coordinators reach out, listen to and connect residents, encouraging residents to take action on the things they care about most.
If you have a great idea about what is needed to make your neighbourhood a better place we would love to hear it. We are a part of a growing network offering opportunities, peer support and others who may like your idea.
Residents have been helped to set up a whole range of new groups, projects and activities including; Breakfast/Lunch clubs, Coffee groups, Reminiscing groups, Good Neighbour Schemes, Litter picks, Dog walkers groups and many more.

WHAT IS COMMUNITY ORGANISING?
When communities work together, the possibilities for positive change are endless. Community organising is the work of bringing people together to take action around their common concerns and overcome social injustice. Community organisers reach out and listen, connect and motivate people to build their collective power. When people are organised, communities get heard and power begins to shift creating real change for good.
