My Community

The Community Rights give you the power to make a difference in your community. You can get involved in local decision making, helping you to work with others to make your area a better place to live.

Visit the My Community website for information, resources, grants, advice and to access the My Community Network.

The My Community service and network run by Locality has been set up to help you make the most of these rights and other opportunities. It helps you to support the things in your area that are important to you, like libraries, pubs, and local shops.

community rights

My Community helps you to:

  • Have more of a say over what happens to the local economy, assets and services
  • Connect with like-minded people, who can inspire and support you
  • Have an influence over the future development of your area through neighbourhood planning and building for your community

Locality and partners are here to help, whatever stage of the journey you’re at.

Grants and support

Funding and support is available to help you take control of local land and buildings, local services, neighbourhood planning and the local economy. Visit the My Community website to find out about the funding and support on offer.

If you’d like one-to-one advice on anything to do with Community Rights, grants, or support, call our advice line, Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, 10.00am – 12.30pm (local call rate) 0300 020 1864 or visit the online help centre.
