Portsmouth Together – Local volunteering for local need and Category Sponsor
Portsmouth Together is a city wide partnership launched in October 2014 with the support of Cities of Service, an international coalition of cities dedicated to engaging with local people to make differences against pressing city issues.
Portsmouth Together seeks to inspire and mobilise volunteers; create a volunteer support network; and develop and sustain an ethos of ‘people helping people’ to address the most pressing needs of our great city.
In February 2014, with the support of The Southern Co-operative and The News, we launched ‘Love Your Street’, a grants based project which seeks to encourage others to work with their neighbours to build stronger communities.
Residents can apply for ‘Love Your Street’ grants to use for projects that could make a change for the better in a street or small neighbourhood. It could be creating a community garden, cleaning up a derelict area or street or a project to befriend isolated residents. It is for this reason that Portsmouth Together is pleased to sponsor the Portsmouth in Bloom ‘Community Garden’ category.
