Neighbourhood action co-ordinators

Unlock your community’s potential

Since 2022, the Neighbourhood Action Co-ordinator Programme has placed a dedicated co-ordinator in specific areas of the city to organise activities that take action on local priorities and improve those local areas. They co-ordinate projects with local communities, council services, partners and ward councillors.

What neighbourhood action co-ordinators do

Neighbourhood action co-ordinators help residents and local organisations to work together in line with the local ward plan. Activities include supporting community groups to access funding, develop activities, or co-ordinate environmental clear ups.

Neighbourhood action co-ordinators:

  • develop community-led action plans based on local priorities
  • empower communities to take action to improve their neighbourhoods
  • connect residents and council services
  • co-ordinate action across services and communities to benefit local areas

Their work focuses on:

  • the local environment, for example fly tipping and litter
  • community safety, for example neighbourhood nuisance such as vandalism and street drinking
  • quality of life, for example improving access to green spaces and improving local pride

For an example of the difference that our co-ordinators make, watch the video about our Billesley Fire Station mural project in 2023.
