3. Initiate community action
Many people simply take action to do something they like or initiate something that they would like to see in their neighbourhood. It may be joining a letter pick, helping to run the local community shop, starting a pop up cafe in the village hall, or getting an open space designated to safeguard it for the future.
There are lots of resources available to support community action volunteers. See the Social Action Resources and Useful Links sections or contact Community First Oxfordshire.
