In your Citizenship classes you will have learnt about the problems faced
by different people and groups in your community. As a result you may
want to find out more, do something to help or make other people more
aware of these problems. Here are some suggestions of practical activities
you could do, such as inviting a speaker to your school or writing to
your local politician.
If you are organising an event you'll want to make sure that people know
it's taking place. In this Publicity section you'll find help on the best
way to interest the media in your project.
Useful tips are given on being interviewed by the press, organising a
photo-call and writing a press release.
The easiest way to find out what you can do for your community is to
ask them. You could contact local groups to learn about their work or
volunteer to help with any projects they are running. These organisations
will be able to tell you about the issues concerning them or give you
help and advice on the issues important to you.
The Directory lists a range of organisations, giving their contact details
and information on what they do.
