Looking for ideas or inspiration for your project? 

Our case studies give some great examples of successful community projects that have already helped to make better neighbourhoods, some big and some small. You can see what has worked elsewhere, pick up some top tips for your project or identify other people that you might want to get in touch with.

Remember that these are just examples and projects that work in one place might need to be changed to work in others.
