Welcome to the CLS Hub

This Support and Learning Hub is where local communities funded through the Big Lottery Fund’s Communities Living Sustainably programme can share information about their projects, ask each other questions and talk about progress.

Here is the place to share what’s working well and access help and support from the Groundwork UK Learning Partnership. We will also use this hub to share the learning that communities are gathering from this programme.

This is the final CLS weekly newsletter. It’s been an amazing few years working with the 12 projects and being able to share their achievements with the world. We will still be around for another couple of months working on some final reports from the learning partnership, so look out for those! If you would like to keep up to date with Groundwork and our work on communities and the environment, sign up to our newsletter here!

It has been a busy couple of months for the Irwell Valley Sustainable Communities project team. They have launched their Community Emergency Plan and really hope that they do not need to activate it this year. They tested the plan earlier in the year when Greater Manchester ran operation Triton (simulation) and they were called upon to evacuate a few vulnerable people with their volunteers.
