Resources for community organisations: My Community – tools, tips and ideas to make your community a better place to live

My Community is a website for people and organisations who are passionate about their communities. Whether setting up a foodbank or planning finances, all organisations need a little help at times. My Community is a useful go-to place for this support.

Finding informative, accurate, up-to-date resources can be a challenge for community groups and individuals looking to make change in their community. The My Community website provides a central hub for this information and support – saving local charities, community groups, and individual change-makers valuable time, and empowering them to provide even better services and support.

All the content on My Community has been curated, written, designed or hand-picked by leading voluntary sector organisations who understand what communities need to survive and thrive.

Every aspect of the site is designed to support the user to find solutions to their problems, identified by user research and testing. 

As well as having a useful search function, the My Community website provides helpful advice and information on a range of topics, including:

o Affordable and community-led housing.
o Business and financial support.
o Climate Action.
o Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.
o Governance, and
o Neighbourhood Planning.

Locality, the national membership network for community organisations, develops, edits and runs My Community day-to-day. The website is regularly tested by its users, to ensure that it is easy to navigate and has the range of resources they need for their projects.
