Streets Alive builds neighbourliness and community spirit
We are the national group promoting street parties and run the popular resource website streetparty.org.uk. We help residents and groups to organise these and other neighbours' events such as picnics, tea parties and street play to build communities from the street up.
Our communities are more mobile and diverse, and so Streets Alive is developing a new framework of 'excuses to meet' in streets and for residents to build relationships.
We have made Bristol the street party capital of the UK with 100+ events being held annually. Meeting in their street means that most households take part, including hard-to-reach households.
We are developing a new neighbours campaign for mixing generations. Our ageing society needs to find new ways of older and younger people to support each other and reduce isolation.
Activate My Street is possible once residents are engaged by:
- organising social, cultural, sporting, and environmental activities
- helping children to play in the street
- signposting residents to support and advice services
- recruiting volunteers for voluntary groups and charities
Join us in transforming the country from the street up.
