Are you a community group who could do with a helping hand for a larger scale project? Or a business or contractor looking to give something back and make a real difference to your community? If so, the Our Town Community S.O.S is for you.

The Community S.O.S is for those projects that may require a little more than a lick of paint or a bit of tidying up – it’s for projects that demand plenty of team work and a few different areas of expertise. We’re gathering a panel of experts in their fields who have a real commitment to social value and will be looking to match them to community groups who could really use their support. If you have an idea for a project, please complete the online Expression of Interest form, to tell us a little more.

If you’d prefer to talk it through with your local Community Officer first, please email and we’ll get in touch.

If  you are a business or contractor who would love to be involved, please contact us on
