My Community Starter
My Community Starter is an initiative from Zurich. It’s a free and entirely unique online resource for people who want to get involved in organising smaller, more straightforward community activities.
There are thousands of people across the UK who want to help others directly or organise something for the good of their neighbourhood. My Community Starter can help them make a difference in their local community.
The site is aimed at people who would like to get involved, or are already involved, in simple, straightforward community activities and want a helping hand. Zurich is also keen to help all those who have an active role in social inclusion.
The site looks at barriers that stand in the way to volunteering in local communities, and provides some guidance and information that might be helpful to would be volunteers to get started. It includes some guidance on planning, legal, health and safety and insurance considerations, as well as handy information sheets which may help to make community activities a success. There’s also a useful tool that will create a free "My Community Starter" pack adapted to the specific activities that people want to set up.
The site encourages individuals and small groups of volunteers to come together and start to do more in the places where they live for their own benefit and for those around them.
So if you or someone you know is thinking of starting an activity within your local area or are looking to develop one that is already in place – the My Community Starter can help – so why not visit the site for yourself today or pass on the details to friends, colleagues and others in the community?
