Our Vision: “An inclusive city owned and led by the community, empowering people to take action to bring about sustainable change”.
What do we mean by social action? Social action is about people coming together to help improve their lives and solve the problems that are important in their communities. It can include volunteering, giving money, community action or simple neighbourly acts.
Through the commitment and skill of citizens, social action can empower communities, help people in need, and complement public services. Taking part in social action is also associated with higher levels of well being, and can improve people’s confidence and skills.
We need your help? We often get asked what’s wrong in our communities but we want to hear about what’s good in your neighbourhood and how we can build on that to make positive changes in Portsmouth. We are consulting with residents, businesses and local organisations to ensure it meets the needs of the city as a whole.
This is about building on what is strong, not trying to put right what is wrong.
