What wonderful things could you and your neighbours do together?

Taking part in Transition Streets supports you to imagine and create other ways that you can make your street a more caring, sharing, greener place to live.


"The outstanding benefit that we have all enjoyed about Transition Streets has been to feel community- some us for the first time; to know our neighbours; to feel part of a greater whole; to feel connected."
