Street Champions are volunteers who play an active role in taking pride in their community. They care about their local area, look out for their neighbours and want a clean, safe place to live. If you are one of these highly valued individuals, the Council will help you to make your community spirit go even further.
What do Street Champions do?
There are a range of things you can choose to do as a Street Champion and it is up to you to decide what you want to do in your local neighbourhood. The roles are broken down into three key areas:
- For example - litter picking, cutting back overhanging branches, pruning, maintaining community gardens, spraying dog poo with a bright coloured paint to deter dog fouling, linking in with the work of your local Parish or Town Council or supporting community events.
- By keeping a regular eye on your local area you can help us identify local issues, so they can be dealt with as quickly as possible.
- From time to time there may be opportunities for volunteers to take part in other environmental projects. This could include awareness raising campaigns or data collection for example.
How much time will I have to put in?
This is down to you and is based on what you want to get involved in. All we ask is that you do as much as you can. There may be other Street Champions operating in your area too, so we can put you in touch with them so you can work together.
If you are interested and would like to find out more you can read our FAQs in our Street Champion leaflet.
