Making your local area better

If like other people in your neighbourhood you are proud to call Acton, Ealing, Greenford, Hanwell, Northolt, Perivale or Southall home then there are lots of things that you can do to help make it an even better place to live.

It is easy to get involved with projects and activities already happening in your area. How about helping out in your local park by joining a group of volunteers or getting together with your neighbours to transform a disused space into something families can enjoy?

And what about your own ideas for improving where you live? Tips on how to get started and even how to get your project funded can be found here and you can encourage others to help out by posting your idea using the 'Got a Project' feature on this site.

There are lots of simple things you can do every day like making sure you are recycling as much as possible helping to keep your street or the parks you visit clean of litter and you may even be able to earn rewards for doing so through Better Points.

Thousands of people in your community are already helping out. Find out how you can do something good today.
