Streets Alive works in communities to build relationships between neighbours on a mass scale to empower them to strengthen their community
We are the national group promoting street parties at all times of the year.
We facilitate Meet My Street mixer events such as street parties, 'street meets', picnics, lounges and web pages to build community spirit.
Based in Bristol, we have made it the street party capital of the UK with 200 events being held annually. Meeting in their street means that most households take part, including hard-to-reach households.
We made it possible for neighbours to meet through street parties to be held as is traditional for the Royal Wedding and the Diamond Jubilee.
Activate My Street is possible once residents are engaged by:
- organising social, cultural, sporting, and environmental activities
- signposting residents to support and advice services
- recruiting volunteers for voluntary groups and charities
- engaging residents with consultations and the political system
With more independent and less localised lives we have fewer chances to bump into people, so Streets Alive fills the gap by providing an 'excuse to meet' in streets and a framework to build stronger communities.
Join us in transforming the country from the street up.
