multi-awarded organisation

Awarded for promoting

excellence and high

community participation

started in 1996,​ constituted in 1999

Action for Stannington is a public awareness campaign inviting people to take positive action towards issues such as littering and thoughtful use of resources.

The key to improving the local environment and the success of most voluntary groups lies in raising awareness and encouraging residents to look after their community.

We organise group events to contain the problem e.g. "Spring Clean", whilst on the other hand we strive to find long term solutions e.g. co-operation with schools and promotion of recycling.

We can all help protect and preserve our local area through careful behaviour and voluntary activities.

Every member of Action for Stannington is an unpaid volunteer dedicating their time towards a cleaner, greener and safer neighbourhood.
