The Royal Society for Public Health and Locality are calling for UK local:

  • Individuals (such as religious leaders, school governors, councillors, community leaders or champions etc)
  • community organisations (such as residents associations, parents and teacher’s associations, church congregations, new mum’s groups etc),
  • charities
  • and commissioners (NHS or/and Local Council) who are interested in building stronger community spirit in their localities. 

We are designing a framework to help communities/localities understand and improve their community spirit levels and the factors that influence it so that improvement strategies can be designed and implemented.

The methodology would be participative and co-creative whereby all interested stakeholders including community members, local organisations and decision makers can have input.

If you are interested in this framework and would like to help us test it, please complete the expressions of interest form and send it to us by 9:00 AM on 17 February

If you are selected, we will let you know within two working days after the deadline and invite you to attend a briefing workshop on Friday 6 March in Birmingham (so please pencil it in your diary!).

We will select 6 expressions of interest and provide them with support, including up to £800 to cover the logistics, facilitation costs and staff time of running a community event to test our framework. 

If you have any questions, please contact the Project Manager Nelly Araujo on [email protected] or 020 72657322.
