Advice Community forum

The Advice Community connects people who are doing great things in their communities: ask a question on our online forum and get a community-sourced answer.

This is advice and experience coming from people who are taking over pubs or green spaces, running local projects and making plans that will help shape the future of their neighbourhoods and communities.

The Advice Community is also supported by the experts: My Community Help Centre Advisors, Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government, Locality staff, Place Based Social Action staff and My Community Champions.
