bigstock-Group-of-diverse-hands-holding-237396289

The National Association of Local Councils (NALC) is proud to support this year's Communities Week to help recognise the work of local people, groups and organisations across the country.

Every year, Communities Week provides an opportunity to appreciate the work of local people, local (parish and town) councils and organisations across the country driving positive change and making impacts in their communities. This year, Communities Week will start on 9 September 2019 and run until 13 September.

The aim is to increase awareness of how people on the ground can build stronger communities, both socially and economically. The government has recently set out a vision of how to ensure communities and civil society across Britain are celebrated and supported.

Cllr Sue Baxter, chair of NALC, said: "NALC is proud to support Communities Week once again. It is a great initiative to help acknowledge the amazing work local councils are doing across the country to help build stronger communities."

This year there is a focus on five key themes; Community business, community engagement and volunteering, neighbourhood planning and community-led housing, community spaces, and celebrating communities.
